The Metabolism Diet

According to the Metabolism Diet, if you eat a certain combination of food, you initiate a chemical reaction where (gasp!) your metabolism works faster and burns more calories. This diet plan is the opposite of many soup diets as they usually promote just eating one type of food over a longer period of time.

It’s relatively easy to follow:

For a week, you drink a minimum of four glasses of water or diet soda a day, and use only the following sauces and spices to season your food:

  • herbs, salt, pepper, lemon, vinegar, Worcestershire, soy sauce, mustard and ketchup.
  • It’s a little strange why ketchup is supposed to jumpstart metabolism, but it does make the food a little easier to swallow.

You then strictly follow this menu:

  • Day 1
  • Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal
    Lunch: two hard-boiled eggs and a cup of cooked spinach
    Dinner: lettuce and celery salad, and a 6 oz. steak (fried in PAM)

  • Day 2
  • Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal and one cracker
    Lunch: lettuce and celery salad, and a 6 oz. steak broiled or grilled
    Dinner: an 8-10 oz. slice of ham

  • Day 3
  • Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal and one cracker
    Lunch: two hard-boiled eggs, 1 cup green beans, 1 cup tomatoes
    Dinner: an 8-10 slice oz. of Ham, 2 cups green bean/tomato salad

  • Day 4
  • Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal and one cracker
    Lunch: one hard boiled egg, 1 cup raw carrots
    Dinner: one cup regular yoghurt, 1 oz. mozzarella cheese, 1 cup fruit salad

  • Day 5
  • Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal and 1 water cracker, 1 raw carrot, Juice of 1 lemon
    Lunch: one fried fish fillet, 4-6 oz. and tomato salad
    Dinner: one 4-6 oz. steak and green salad

  • Day 6
  • Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal and 1 cracker
    Lunch: one 4-8oz. broiled chicken, skin removed
    Dinner: two hardboiled eggs, 1 raw carrot

  • Day 7
  • Breakfast: tea with lemon
    Lunch: one 4-8oz. steak broiled or grilled, 1 and 1/2 cup of fruit
    Dinner: a sensible dinner

The Verdict. Despite the supposed scientific claims of metabolic processes and the chemical reactions of foods, this diet works for one reason and one reason alone—you’re taking so little calories you’ll shed the pounds. That sounds good, but actually, it’s also got so little vitamins and nutrients you’ll most likely feel faint and tired. Not something you want to do for more than 7 days, even if you do love ketchup. .

    This diet was terrible! Your suppose to take in the amount of calories you want to burn to loose weight. This diet dosnt have the right amount to nutrients of carbs to take in let alone fat. You need fat to lose weight and if your not taking in the right amount of fat then you wont be get the weight lose you truley desire.

    I’m on my 4th day of this diet, when I started I weighd 86kg and today I weigh 84kg. It’s a healthy diet I’ve ever followed in history and it works like a charm. I’m so impressed and surprused at the same time that one has been overlooking this healthy diet plan. I don’t even exercise at the moment, so there’s no hussle at all to follow it. That’s the diet I’ll recommend to everyone including obese teenagers/elder people etc.

  3. by TaniaNo Gravatar November 30th, 2010 10:24 am

    I must say, this diet works! It has been 6 months and I haven’t gained one pound gain. So that tells me this diet is probable the only REAL diet that works in the long term. After the two week diet, I started eating my normal foods: pasta, bread, pork, saucy dishes, wine, chocolate every day, many fruits full of sugar etc and I still weigh the same as just after the diet.

    You can try it. Believe me, should I ever gain weight again, this is the dliet that will give my body back in two weeks.

    Well done, Tania, that’s great to hear it’s been successful for you!

  5. by NosiNo Gravatar January 10th, 2011 11:13 am

    I noticed it only goes as far as day 7? does that mean u go back to day one for the other 6 days since its a 13 day diet?

  6. by DelilahNo Gravatar January 12th, 2011 8:20 am

    Dear Nosi!

    If you want to do this Diet for longer than 7 days then ofcourse you can go back to day 1 and start over. But I wouldn’t recommend to do it for longer than 2 weeks max as it then begins to be unhealthy. 1 week should do the trick, then pause and maybe start over a while later again.

  7. by NosiNo Gravatar January 13th, 2011 8:59 am

    Thanks Delilah, i just realised that i was confusing two diets :) . was googling 13 day diet when i found this site. I have to tell you that i am on day two of this diet and so far so good. I am hoping to see the difference soon and i’m glad its 7days and not more :) .
    Chat in 7 days. I am diarising every detail.

    P.s i have not seen water crackers in store but have salticrax, hope they will do the trick still.

    Hi. im on day 3 of this diet and i feel miserable – i have headaches, nausea, dizziness – i just feel like i was hit by a train – is it fine if i just do it for 7 days instead of 13?

  9. by DelilahNo Gravatar January 27th, 2011 9:24 pm

    Mbrizza, I’m sure 7 days is better than nothing at all. If you feel that unwell, maybe it’s not the right diet for you.

    I’ve been exploring and searching for a bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Google I at last stumbled upon this web site. Wow, great, finally. Upon Reading this info So i’m happy to convey and realize that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed a lot. Thanks a lot. I most certainly will make certain to of course do not forget this web site and give it a glance regularly to compare it with my industrial uninterruptible power supply websiteUnquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be very well aware of. I say to you honestly, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about. Well,You managed to hit the nail upon the top of the hill and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Once again I say directly to you I Will probably be back to get more. Good Day

    I started a similar version of this diet on 21st Feb. Today was my last day and I have lost 4 kilos which i have been battling to lose for a whole year. This diet works , im even thinking of creating an eating plan based on some of the meals on this diet. Hopefully ill lose more!!! its really not that bad , one saturday morning i even went for a 10 km road race.

  15. by DelilahNo Gravatar March 17th, 2011 9:57 am

    Hi Nic,

    you can drink as many cups as you like but just be sure to drink it black. By adding sugar, cream or flavored syrups, you will take in far more calories than you burn.

    Best wishes,

    Delilah

    Hi there.

    Hope all is well.

    What the diffrence between the metabolism diet and the Russian Air Force diet.. They seem to have the same ingredients but differ with one or two days? Do they have the same effect?

    Thanks
    Kay.

  17. by KayNo Gravatar April 2nd, 2011 6:17 pm

    I love love this diet! Not boring at all.. It has all my fav foods and I always look forward to the next days meals! I’m on day 5 and have lost 4kg,without any exercise.. My jeans fit me just right now! Yaay! Decided to do the full two weeks.
    Will keep you updated!

    All thanks!

  19. by FerneNo Gravatar April 12th, 2011 12:17 am

    hi guys… I looked up this web site cos yesterday was my first day and I struggled. it wasn’t the food or the denial of “goodies”…. it was the one coffee at the beginning of the day.
    I am okay that it is a severe diet, but… coffee??? whaaaa……!!!!! so glad to see that an extra couple can be added….. good luck every one.
    I must admit… the fatigue yesterday was crushing, and I even had a nana nap after work… while my parents were visiting!!!! woke up dazzling this morning though and feel I can continue.
    Cheers again…

  20. by DelilahNo Gravatar April 13th, 2011 2:44 pm

    Dear Ferne!
    Keep up the good work – you will see it will end up being worth it. If you feel tired during the day than taking a nap is a good solution. Feeling tired is one side effect of the metabolism diet as it only has a limited amount of nutrients. This is also one of the reasons why it is not advisable to be on the metabolism diet for more than 7 days. If you feel too sleepy or even sick then quit straight away – the metabolism diet doesn’t suit everyone.

    Hey guys.

    I promised to let you know about my full two week progress!

    Well, after 14 days I lost a total of 11kg! I look and feel fantastic! It’s been two weeks since off the diet and it has motivated me to stick to healthy eating and haven’t gained a single pound!

    I would encourage everyone to try this diet, it works and it is wonderful!

    Good luck to all!

    I have been on the diet for the past 12 days and the results are amazing. My clothes are fitting better with most loose. I have not weighed myself yet but i did before i started the diet. I am doing the 13 day metabolism diet though which has been tough but i pulled through it. I can’t wait for tomorrow when i get to finish.

    I would encourage anyone to try the 13 day metabolism diet, it’s a moracle how i look and feel. Good luck everyone

    I started this 13 Day Metabolism Diet on Saturday, the 2nd of June 2011. I’m now on Day 3 & I lost 2kg’s already. Feeling great as i have done it before & lost 9kg’s – never gained the weight since the. I think doing it ever 6 months will do me good0- I should eventually reach my Goal Weight.

    Hi

    I started this diet yesterday, and the temptations argg, but i was strong and i made it through day1.

    so today Day 2 i feel i can do this. My staring weight was 72kg, so decided to hit scale on Day 4 morning! i believe if has work for you gals, it may as well work for me and it helps to know that i’m not alone.

  63. by cindyNo Gravatar July 8th, 2011 11:53 am

    Hi Guys, me again. I’m on Day 7 and I’ve never felt better. 4 Kg’s lost & hoping never to find it again. My mum does this diet every 3 months & it’s working wonders for her as well. If you are considering this, please just go ahead and do it cos you’ll only regret not doing it sooner.

    PS. Asnath, do the diet after 2 months as there is a reason there should be that gap. My friend did it properly after a week of failing & landed herself in hospital. It imbalances your system & we think it’s only food so what’s the worst that could happen, right!!! Wrong, totally wrong on so many levels.

    Gee, I am so glad I came across your experiences with this diet. I am on day 2, so far so good apart form low energy levels….It really motivates me to keep going, reading how nuch weight you lost. I need to shed about 15 – 20 kgs (5 kgs of pregancy fat still there after one year)…..Just want to kick start the whole thing to get motivated to start a healthy diet again.
    I did weigh myself this morning and was surprised to see a 1.0 kg weightloss, weird as that may sound…..
    Am very curious to see who’s also on this diet, lets keep each other focussed!!

    Looking forward to the t
    For me day 5 was the worst.
    I have lost 3.9 kg since I started.
    What Ive noticed is that weight loss has decreased a bit; I only lost 0.3 kg for the last two days. Anyone who has had similiar experience?
    I kinda hoped it would go faster as I am very overweight.

    DAY 9 – unfortunately I am sick..throat infection but perservering nonetheless. This diet is working. I had 9 kgs to lose and I am halfway there which is more than I have been able to do in a year of hard excercise and diet control. Very happy. Recommend this challenge to anyone wanting to drop a few unwanted kgs. Will let you know the end result. And what happens when I resume my normal lifestyle.

    Day 8 – Well i have now gotten used to the diet and it’s so much as a struggle, but as you say it Veronica, if u have to cook for the family, you get soo tempted to stick your finger in there and taste, lol. But I must say the results are certainly visible… I only weighed myself before i started, and will only weigh myself again after day 13.

    Will let u know how much i lost in total… Must say i totally love the flat tummy i have now :-)

    Say, you got a nice article.Much thanks again. Will read on..

  83. by TeeNo Gravatar August 21st, 2011 7:18 pm

    I am allergic to eggs. With what can I substitute them? can I take a multivitamin during the 13 days? what about pills for pain/fever?

  84. by VicklesNo Gravatar August 26th, 2011 11:01 am

    Hey all…. @ Veronica, i lost 6kgs, and quite a bit of centimetres, my work pants now fit and my tummy flat, so i got to say i have reached my target… so now am all for healthy eating and maintaining:-)

    Quick question,

    Is the diet plan for 7 or 13 days?

  88. by LiyemaNo Gravatar August 31st, 2011 2:03 pm

    I’m on day 2 of this diet, i currently weight 80kg. I want to lose and believe that this diet truly works. Hold thumbs for me.

  89. by PhaksieNo Gravatar August 31st, 2011 3:06 pm

    day3, its hard bt still going strong

  90. by PhaksieNo Gravatar September 1st, 2011 1:35 pm

    Day4–much better that day3, less cravings

  91. by SarahNo Gravatar September 6th, 2011 10:16 am

    I have just started the diet and find it VERY difficult. Any people who have completed the diet and not regained the weight? I would love to hear that its worth it in the end. The last diet I did I lost weight but as soon as I returned to normal eating the weight came straight back on.

  92. by leratoNo Gravatar September 6th, 2011 1:16 pm

    hi guys started on sunday and havn’t weighed myself but i hope to lose a maximum of 10 kg’s so what would happen if you carried on this diet to week 3

  93. by LeboNo Gravatar September 7th, 2011 11:55 am

    @ day 3, feel light already but i must say it is not an easy one. Temptations,temptations! all i have to do is a self discipline and i am looking foward to day 13. I will let you know guys, my starting weight was 80.6Kg

  94. by LeboNo Gravatar September 8th, 2011 8:53 am

    Day 4, headaches!

  97. by HendrikaNo Gravatar September 8th, 2011 12:11 pm

    Hi Guys,
    I have just been reading through all the post and I am very exited to have some people that are on the same diet as I am, at least it helps with all the questions i have. The 13 day diet i am following looks a little different and was just wondering if it will still work. I dont want to suffer for 13 days and then find that is was worth nothing. I am on day 5 at the moment. Please can you have a look and let me know if i should continue or not.
    Thanks

  100. by janeneNo Gravatar September 9th, 2011 12:27 pm

    Hi, Lerato and Hendrica, I am also taking that diet. My weightloss is a little slower as I discovered that its that time of the month when I am all puffy and weigh more yet even with that I have lost 3 kg and am on day 6 and have just thoroughly enjoyed my chicken, feel so stuffed.
    Good luck to all of you!!! I am hoping to see an increase in my weightloss next week, in my last week.

  101. by UnathiNo Gravatar September 12th, 2011 8:19 am

    Hey Lovely People: I am on day 8 meaning i`m starting all over again. Yesterday for dinner, as it was my break-away meal…!!! I binged, i shouldn`t feel bad right? I followed everything to the last “T” except last night i was given free rain… hehehehehe
    And so, i eat Oven Butter Pop Corns, A can of Light Coke, My favourite Bokomo oats + a piece of chicken… Is`t that bad???? HELP!!!

  102. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 12th, 2011 12:59 pm

    Hey gals, A friend of mine gave me this diet today, was already on a different diet. So im used to smaller portions. tomorrow im starting and will write an update everyday. Will try to stick to it, it looks simple.

  103. by LeboNo Gravatar September 13th, 2011 7:04 am

    Hi, today im on day 9 and still going strong.my diet is not exactly this one,they are slightly different(it is the same as Hendrika’s). i am so exited to finish because my clothes are starting to fit again.

  104. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 13th, 2011 7:49 am

    The day started well I did Taebo for 30 minutes inthe morning, then i prepared my lunch, and imhaving a cup of coffee as we speak. its that time of the month i hope it doesnt affect my weightloss.

    12 days to go

  105. by KatlegoNo Gravatar September 13th, 2011 8:42 am

    Hi guys, Im on day two and I have to say, day 1 was very difficult, had a lot of headache but managed to pull through without taking an aspiring. I weigh 64kg, hoping to loss 10kg, and another 10 kg after two months when i will be repeating the diet. my weight goal is 50kg. Please cross fingers for me.

  106. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 13th, 2011 10:05 am

    Hi Katlego
    Im on Day 1, we can keep on encouraging each other so we make it to the last day.
    I currently weigh 90. I was 95 when i started dieting, i lost 5kg in the past 2 weeks on a vegetarian diet, Im hoping to also lose 10 or more kilos because im obese it might be easier to lose 10. i wont weigh myself till my size 38 none stretch jean fits.

    I know dinner is always harder because sometimes we have to cook for the family. What i do is wear a clothes that are tight while preparing dinner, it encourages me not to eat what every1 is eating because id like to fit perfectly into those clothes

  107. by KatlegoNo Gravatar September 13th, 2011 1:27 pm

    Kagiso

    Thank you so much for your respose. I bought a weight scale during lunch, so i will weigh myself when i get home tonight and will let you know tomorrow my exact weight-I hope is not as bad, im crossing my fingers.

    I’ve not being to the gym for the past week now, so im goign to resume with it tomorrow, just to speed the weight loss process.

    Wow, you go girl, 5 kg in two weeks, I applaud you, you have done very well for yourself. let’s keep at it and shed the weight off.

  108. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 14th, 2011 7:53 am

    Morning ladies

    Hi Katlego

    Yesterday i got so proud of myself, i did all the things i wanted to do, Worked out for an hour, 30 min of taebo in the morning, going up and down the stairs at work during lunch for 10 minutes, walked for 15 minutes after work and used a body twister for 5 min.

    I ate as i was suppose to. I dont get hungry during the day, my problem is at 3 in the morning. i always wake up because of hunger pangs.

    Didnt weigh myself which is great

    11 more days to go

  109. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 14th, 2011 9:56 am

    8 flight of stairs done after breakfast in 6 min. im so raved up, i really hope ill be able to do this till the last day, and continue with the excersice afterwards. im drinking a lot of water is that dangerous?

  110. by KatlegoNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 6:42 am

    Hi Ladies
    and Kagiso

    I still don’t believe my bathroom scale. yesterday I weighted myself at around 13:30, my weight read 65.3kg. after work i went to gym and when i got home at around 18:45 i weighted myself again I weighted 64.8 kg. I then ate my day 3 dinner (fruit salad and yoghurt) and did some reading and browsing. Then i decided to weight myself before I went to bed and my scale was reading 64.5 kg. amaizingly when I woke up this morning i weighted myself again (more than 6 times because i couldnt believe my eyes) and I was weighing 64 kg. It unbelievable!! realy this diet works.

    I feel so light and energetic. And the headache, only had it on day 1 and it is gone. never seen this, i have tried and tried many diets and diet pills and they never worked for me.

  111. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 7:31 am

    Katlego i, so happy for you.

    Wish everything was going well for me, im on my period and you know one gains weight due to water retention during ones period. yesterday i went to my local pharmacy and dicided to weigh myself, the niddleprincess went to 91, i have gained a kilo. i decided the bog expensive scale is broken, so i got home and went on to mine for second opinion it was 91 still. i had such a sad night, woke up this morning and weighed myself, im back to 90. id really like to go down, i always manage to lose to 89 but never further than that.

    i feel so bloated today, i decided to drink slim tea because it cleans ones tummy. hopefully after i finish my period i will start to loose as rapid as everyone else. Still sticking to this full time

  112. by TINA DE KOCKNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 9:44 am

    Good day,

    Have tried numerous diets after forty and nothing helps. I am on an anti-depressant and high estrogen pill. WILL THIS DIET WORK FOR ME

    Thank you
    TINA

  113. by KatlegoNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 9:46 am

    Hi Kagiso

    Sorry to hear that, but don’t loss heart, like you said the idea is to keep at it even if there are some set back in weight loss. We are winning this- no matter what.

    My body is used to this diet now, don’t even crave the things i used to eat. Im sticking to healthy eating after 13 days. I don’t want to go back. My husband gave me a good incentive yesterday- he said if i achieve my weight goal of 50 kg he will buy me a pair of jeans, so I’m motivated- there is a price to win.

    I have to say, seeing all the weight shedding away really motivated me to be consistent with gym, before i was demotivated because I was sweating everyday with so little results.

  114. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 10:44 am

    I will not lose heart, im not even demotivated by the the weight gain. i will stick with this till the end. I just saw the girl who is my diet buddy im on day 3 and shes on day 5. I was so shocked that on day 5 her face is so much smaller. her clothes cant fit anymore. so she motivates me as well.

    10 more days to go.

  115. by leratoNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 12:32 pm

    eish yah neh i was so close but temptation got the better of me, i’ll try again in a few months. but in the seven days that i was on this diet, i lost 5kg.
    ok ladies this diet will not change your metabolism, the reason you lose weight is because you are taking in so little calories that therse a huge difference between what you are supposed to be taking in daily and what you are taking in when on this diet. my metabolism didnt change one bit infact i was going to the toilet less than what i was before to do the number 2!
    anyways good luck comrades, the weight loss struggle continues

  116. by tlameloNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 12:34 pm

    you guys have motivated me so much……im starting tommorow and hoping to be in shape for the spring break end of september…i will update everyone how it all went….im exited

  117. by CharmaineNo Gravatar September 15th, 2011 3:32 pm

    I’m on day 4 and haven’t weighed myself, but have had others notice the weight loss on me which says something (we are always the first to notice change in ourselves – the flatter stomach is motivation enough to continue!)

    The worst is over for me, I no longer have cravings (or dreams of cup cakes!) and after day 2 I didn’t have any headaches (this is normal for any detoxing you do). I can even walk past our canteen without feeling an urge to buy any of the fast food junk that I usually do.

    If nothing else, after this I hope to be programmed to eat more sensibly, and everything in moderation.

    Good luck gals (and guys!)

  118. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 16th, 2011 8:43 am

    Charmaine, We are in the same day, I weighed myself though. I had a bad day yesterday bcos i had gained a kilo, i got back to my 90kg this morning i did it again and im now 89. By day 4 people have lost a lot and i havent, so i am a little worried because im desperate to lose this weight. ive stuck with this diet from day 1 and im sticking to it till day 13.

    To Katlego
    How are yo buddy, how much do you weigh today cos i know you jumped on to that scale. lol. As you can read above my day started well. and im glad, im so glad that the steak and chicken fall over the weekend for me

  119. by KatlegoNo Gravatar September 16th, 2011 11:08 am

    Hi Kagiso
    Yes, you guessed right, my bathroom scale has become my new best friend. I’m happy to say I lost another kilo. I hopped on this morning and I was at 63Kg.
    I’m happy that you also lost that kilo. bravo to us

    And Charmaine I’m with you there, I don’t crave anymore-in fact i have developed a conscience for food and how it affects me. I’m reading a lot of articles and materials on this subject and learning new things.

    Tlamelo you won’t regret starting on the diet. Please keep us updated.

    a luta continua

  120. by KatlegoNo Gravatar September 16th, 2011 11:32 am

    Tlamelo

    I need to mention that I was so reluctant on staring the diet, because I couldn’t understand how food can actually results in weight loss. I felt stupid eating that steak on Monday and when I was done- my jaws were so painful from chewing that whole chunk of meat. I really laughed at myself and felt sick after wards. Nonetheless, it was all worth it.

  121. by TianaNo Gravatar September 16th, 2011 11:44 am

    day 5, following 100%, but only lost 1 kg? How on earth is that possible!

  122. by KeneilweNo Gravatar September 19th, 2011 7:16 am

    hey guys

    looking at ur comments with this diet, i am convinced it works. I have decided to follow it, as from today. i weigh 67kg hoping to lose as much as possible for my wedding in November… such pressure:-( but ur comments show that the diet is effective:-) looking forward to the 13 days.

  123. by SharonNo Gravatar September 19th, 2011 7:23 am

    Hi,
    I’m on day 5 of the 13 day diet. The first two days i lost 2kg but the next 2 days i only lost 800g. Has anyone else also slowed down? Its a bit dissapointing. I’m still commited to keep going tho coz i have allot to loose.

  124. by KagisoNo Gravatar September 19th, 2011 8:39 am

    Hi Katlego

    IM So sorry to dissapoint you but i had to quit the diet on friday, I got so sick from eating so little. i thought i was dying. Ive been sick with stomach cramps burning and all, since friday till today. So i pulled out. Funny thing is I still havent lost even a kilo, the kilo i lost i gained it back. even though now i have a terrible runny tummy I cant keep anything in my weight still remains on 90. Oh well< thats it for me and crash diets, no more, some one mentioned that this diet is not for every1, it was most def not for me. but good luck i hope you see the results. will keep checking up on you n the girls

  125. by LeboNo Gravatar September 19th, 2011 8:43 am

    hi guys,im done with the diet and i lost 5 kg in total. now i can encourage others to follow the diet,it is realy working when you follow it properly.from now on im gona make sure that i choose what i eat and i am not going to cheat the gym.
    So good luck to you all and stay strong,if you wana see good results dont cheat!

  126. by KatlegoNo Gravatar September 19th, 2011 12:50 pm

    Hi Kagiso, sorry to hear that, hope you recover from the side effects. You need to do what works for you, and if this diet does not work for you, then you need to throw it out. you cant afford to risk it.

    It has not being easy but im hanging in there, today is day 8. I have’nt lost that much weight since the last time, I’m at 61 kg. My weight loss like Sharon has gone on a slow mode but Im happy with what i have achieved thus far. Will see how it changes as days progresses. I will keep you posted.

    A well done to you Lebo.

  127. by CharmaineNo Gravatar September 19th, 2011 3:24 pm

    Hi all!

    Day 8 and I’m feeling great. So much easier to follow the 2nd week than the 1st. I’ve lost about 4 kg’s when I weighed myself 2 days ago, only going to weigh in on Saturday again. Think this consciousness of what we’re eating (all the research I’m doing) will lead to a great change of lifestyle. That’s where the maintaining comes in handy so as not to gain what we’ve just lost. Recommending this to all my friends!

    Hang in there, it’s tough, but worth it :)

  128. by BradNo Gravatar September 21st, 2011 6:19 am

    Kia ora
    I started the diet on Sunday 4 days ago and weighed 116kgs, its now day four and i weigh 111.3kgs thats 4.7kgs gone. Im a little low on energy and have committed to seing the 13days through.

    Awesme diet just need to focus.

  129. by SharonNo Gravatar September 21st, 2011 10:02 pm

    Hi,
    I’m going on day 8 tomorrow. Still going strong.
    Tina, as far as i know anti depressants can cause weight gain in some people. So maybe this diet would help kick start your metabolism? Maybe you should phone your doc and ask if it’ll be ok. :-)

  130. by ruthNo Gravatar September 22nd, 2011 4:17 pm

    hi, im on day 4 of this diet and just wondering is it normal not to have regular bowel movements, i havent had one yet, is this normal appreciate any comments

  131. by SharonNo Gravatar September 23rd, 2011 9:04 am

    Hi ruth,
    Yes, i have irregular bowel movements. For me it is very lose and not every day. I think it effects everyone differently. I am on day 9 today.

  132. by ruthNo Gravatar September 23rd, 2011 5:37 pm

    thanks sharon, i have lost 3kg im in the middle of day 5, hoping to lose alot more, at day 9 what have u lost?

  133. by SolNo Gravatar September 25th, 2011 5:42 am

    I am starting Tomorrow. I am 69.7 kgs now. Good luck to everyone!!

  134. by SharonNo Gravatar September 25th, 2011 6:12 am

    Hi ruth,
    At day 11 now and weighed myself on day 9 i lost 4.2kg. It slowed down for me because i started my periods. So i’m only gonna weigh myself at the end now. By then i shouldn’t be bloated anymore. I’m so happy with what i’ve lost. Feels great. How did your weekend go? Hope u managed to stay strong. xxx

  135. by ruthNo Gravatar September 25th, 2011 10:05 am

    hi sharon, im on day 7 now, hoping it will get easier from day 8 onwards, it is tough but just takes alot of will power, i have lost 3-4kg so far, im not going to weigh myself again til the end, i reckon it will be a nice surprise and something to look forward to at the end to see what i have lost altogether. i have to admitt it doesnt really feel like i have lost 4 kg, but i must admitt my stomach feels alot flatter- i would love to lose 10 kg at the end-fingers crossed-hope the next 3 days go well for you,let me know- are you following day 1-7 on this website? mine is nearly the same just slight variations, ive taken mine from the slimming 4 all site

  136. by SharonNo Gravatar September 26th, 2011 6:09 am

    Hi ruth,
    Mine is from the live and feel website. Its called the metabolism change diet. Its very strict to follow so I’m surprised that i managed to be so strong. I also wanted to loose 10kg, but i’ve decided to be happy with whatever i loose. When i started i had to loose 20kg. So when this diet is over i’m gonna start exercising and eating healthy and do the diet again in 6 months.

  137. by BradNo Gravatar September 27th, 2011 11:44 am

    Kia ora im on day 9 now and have lost 9kgs, i will admit that i cheated once and couldnt resist eating a half of punnet of kina but i still lost weight and i feel fine. LEts see what the rest of the week brings.

Some guidence would be good. thx.

    Day one of the diet and its not going bad at all. Black coffee without sugar or milk was not that bad at all. Also dusted off the orbitrek and got in 10 minutes of a workout. Damn I’m so out of shape! Wish me luck….

    Hi,

    I am glad this blog exist, its motivating to share with others. I am on day 5 but then on day 1 dinner i found myself in a party and there was no steak, instead i ate a small piece of chicken breast. Was that a biiiiiiiiiiig problem? Will i still get the results am looking for? Do i have to strictly, religiously follow this diet? Besides, some of these of these servings are too much for me. Please advice.

  148. by ImmaNo Gravatar October 10th, 2011 12:43 pm

    Hi ladies, you guys hav motivated me. I’m day 1 on this diet. Starting weight is 89

  149. by ImmaNo Gravatar October 10th, 2011 12:44 pm

    Ladies, can i always hav my coffee with sweetners?

  150. by SkyeNo Gravatar October 11th, 2011 7:16 am

    Day 2 for me. I feel good coz of the workout this morning. Starting weight a wopping 93kg’s. so good to know that i can check in with others that have also started with me on this diet. Besides a slight headache yesterday, it went fine. Ladies, good luck today and check in and let me know how your day went.

  151. by LolaNo Gravatar October 11th, 2011 11:30 am

    Day 2 for me toooo! Good luck all!

  152. by SkyeNo Gravatar October 12th, 2011 7:15 am

    Day 3 and I could not resist jumping on the scale. Down 1.5 kg’s already. And the I feel so energised after doing this diet together with the exercise. Yay!

  153. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 12th, 2011 7:55 am

    After careful consideration, i decided to start the diet again today. Last time i got so sick but it was because i was also taking slim tea wich literally cleans your stomach, its almost like laxatives, but the problem was my stomach was almost empty everyday. So i ended up having the worst stomach cramps. So this time i will be drinking rooibos tea with lemon, only. for me this is not just another fad diet i want to try out, it is about sticking to a plan for at least 2 weeks i always always give up after the 1st week. im 90 kg n im getting married mid december, i have exactly 2 months to drop as much as possible, I will be alternating between this one and the calorie shifting diet, since it is not that low in calories. honestly i would like to be @ least 15 to 20kg lighter. wish me luck

  154. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 13th, 2011 1:47 pm

    Where is every1? Oh well my day 1 is going pretty well. Just need motivation to take a 45 min to an hour walk later today. Scale can be your best friend or your worst nightmare. I find it easier to weigh myself everyday, get dissapointed and discouraged on a daily basis . than to wait for the 7th day n realise i lost nothing or gained. So i have to figure out which 1 i prefer this 2 weeks. The suprise of realising i lost after 7 days excites me as well. Hmmmm, dilemma indeed

    Hi Everybody, Im starting the diet on Sunday. so interesting to follow everybody’s progress

  157. by AngelaNo Gravatar October 14th, 2011 5:24 am

    I got this diet from a Chinese dietitian and just realized that it’s the metabolism diet. On the end of the 4th day (toughest day so far) but I’m doing so good so far!

  158. by Ms PNo Gravatar October 14th, 2011 8:00 am

    hey guys, im on day 3 and so far i’ve lost 3 kg and im soo excited. my only worry is the sagging. i suppose i need to jog or take walks to tone but im loving the progress. unfortunately, i have to cook for my family everyday and hard as it is to resist the yummy stews i make them, i am motivated and disciplined. cheers everybody

  159. by SkyeNo Gravatar October 14th, 2011 8:28 am

    Day five for me ladies and I feel so much better than last week. Much more energised because of the healthy food, the exercise and all the water I am drinking. The weekend is coming up and I am determined not to find any excuse to cheat. On Monday I will weigh myself again to see whats the progress. Good luck to all of u and if u get any cravings this weekend…just drink a litre of water and you’ll be too full to think about eating anything. lol

  160. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 14th, 2011 8:29 am

    Im on Day 2, didnt get an oppotunity to walk yesterday. Since i need to walk/jog for 6 hours a week, and i will have to add 10 minutes to tidays walk. Oh and so far i lost a kilo. yes couldnt resist the scale, i decided it will be my closest friend till the 14th day. Imagine if i were to lose between 5 and 10 kg just like all the testimonies i read above.

  161. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 14th, 2011 8:32 am

    Ms P.

    I dont think sagging will be a big problem, just make sure after you reach your goal weight, or after the diet you start with strength training and i think now jogging or brisk walking will also help,

    Good luck

  162. by Ms PNo Gravatar October 14th, 2011 8:53 am

    Thanks Kagiso, Please let me know how you go. I wont let the heat keep me from achieve my goals. Botswana is a nightmare. By the way, i keep seeing posts for 14 days. I thought this diet was meant for 7 days and becomes unhealthy when you go beyond?

  163. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 14th, 2011 9:08 am

    Ms P

    No its also called the 13 day diet. Its so hot, that is also my problem, Im going to try walking at around 5:30, will probably only nwalk 30 minutes, and maybe 15 minutes of stepping on my front door step and do 15 minutes of either stationary jogging or marching on the same sport whilel watching a soapie. then stretch for 10 minutes. I hope i can stick to that for at least these 2 weeks

  164. by nozukoNo Gravatar October 16th, 2011 4:17 pm

    Its my first day on the diet en I’m feeling so weak en hungry gland I found ths site coz now I feel motivated

  165. by ShashNo Gravatar October 16th, 2011 7:55 pm

    Hey people… after all the positive reviews I’m convinced and have finally started this diet today…
    Today being my first day I was just a little drained out and sleepy coz I miss my evening Tea…. but was not atall hungry….
    I checked my weight today and I’m 85 kgs… will check again on Thurday… that will be my day 5… and will keep you posted on my progress…..

    Hoping for this to work for me to lose my maximum weight…. All the best to everyone following this ;o))

  166. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 17th, 2011 7:36 am

    Today is my first day – I weigh 80 kg will let you know how its going.

  167. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 17th, 2011 8:06 am

    Today is my 5th day, I cheated badly this weekend, but im gon keeping going until the 13th day, so far i lost 3kg. im now 87kg. I will try not to weigh myself for the next 3 days cos 5 is just too long for me. ;) but i did a 3km walk this morning, will do it again for a while.

  168. by SkyeNo Gravatar October 17th, 2011 12:06 pm

    Its been a week since I started the diet and I have lost nearly 4 kg’s. The weekend was so hard but I managed to hang in there – even with the kids shoving biscuits, chips and chocolates in my face. A bit disappointed coz I thought I would lose more. But hey, I still got 6 more days to go. But even if I dont lose the 8kg’s I will still be happy with the weight loss and promise to keep up the healthy eating and exercise – although I dont think I would want to eat steak again for a while. lol

  169. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 17th, 2011 4:04 pm

    On Day four and dying of thirst, even though I have just finished drinking 3 l of water today. lost 3 kg already so very happy. Going home now to my fruit and yogurt. Actually enjoyed the carrots and cheese – made a salad from it. Just wish I could have another cup of coffee or at least someother than water – its getting to be very Blegh.Well done to all the others.

  170. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 17th, 2011 4:50 pm

    1st day was easier than expected. I’m feeling very tired today BUT I have to go to Gym. Had 3l of water just like Angelique today.

  171. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 18th, 2011 6:58 am

    Help! Suffering bad with constipation, any ideas. drinking more than my required quota of water. Normally suffer from constipation and when it gets to bad I do a salt water flush. Think I can do it with this diet?

  172. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 18th, 2011 8:25 am

    its my 6th day and i am still stuck on 3kg loss. was really hoping to lose a little more than that, but who knows since i started walking i might just lose 1kg before i start a new week. on thursday. wont weigh myself tomoro morning will weigh on the 8th day morning. hoping for a suprise, mayb 1 to 2 more kilos lost

  173. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 18th, 2011 8:52 am

    Im on day 2 and dropped 1 kg. Weight 79.00 this morning. Also went to gym for the first time in a very long time. Was very tired yesterday but Im feeling much better today …… ohhhh Im so excited I LOVE THIS DIET and I will HANG IN THERE ITS ONLY DAYS!! I only have 11.75 days to go. Good luck to everybody.

  174. by KagisoNo Gravatar October 18th, 2011 8:54 am

    @ Angelique, I believe this diet has nothing to do with your metabolism, it is a very low calorie diet that will help you to lose fast. I eat gum, because i work with clients and this diet makes your breath smell. So have you salt water

  175. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 18th, 2011 12:06 pm

    Thanks Kagiso.
    One problem have not had to deal with yet (thank goodness)Main goial now is to start getting some exercise into my life. Just too full of life is busy excuses. Day 5 is going okay, just forgot my tomatoes at home. But hate tomatoes so not feeling to bad about them. Woke up very hungry this morning after just having apples and yogurt for supper. Looking forward to my steak supper.

  176. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 18th, 2011 12:26 pm

    Kagiso the reason why you only lost 3 kg on day 6 is because you are not following the diet correctly. If this diet is followed in strict manner you should loose a lot of your excess body fat. If during the 13 days you consume 1 beer, 1 glass of wine, 1 piece of chewing gum or any extra food, you may as well stop the diet because it is pointless and the diet will no longer have any affect. The purpose of this diet is to change your metabolism with the result that after the diet you can eat normally again. This is NOT a crash diet but a diet to change your metabolism and digestion. One of my friend lost 46 kg by sticking to the rules for 13 days …….. and repeating the diet every 3 months. Another friend lost also 20 kg. I have a book on this diet and I’m just giving you the information in my book. GOOD LUCK

  177. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 18th, 2011 8:28 pm

    Crap. Realised tonight I ate the wrong days breakfast. Had the bread instead of the carrots for Day 5. What Now? Do I eat carrots for breakfast and for supper?

  178. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 19th, 2011 5:49 am

    Day 3 for me and dropped another kg. Weight now 78kg and on my way to Gym.

  179. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 19th, 2011 7:42 am

    Morning of Day 6 and now lost 4.2 kg. Very happy even if I did screw up yesterdays breakfast. Having the carrots for breakfast today and then for supper, probably will look a bit orange tomorrow. hahaha. Still can’t decide what to have for supper tomorrow. Pizza is too guilty, Mac and cheese is to carby. A burger is to much like steak. Don’t want to see fish or I am sure after today’s lunch don’t want to see chicken and enough with the green salad. What amazes me about this diet is that I am not craving sugar. Normally I just want to have something sweet even a lozenge to help the craving.

  180. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 19th, 2011 10:38 am

    Wow Angelique well done Girl. That was plenty of carrots for one day !!! Good luck for tomorrow.

  181. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 19th, 2011 11:09 am

    Thanks Tanya. I feel like a rabbit right now and I still have supper to look forward too. LOL

  182. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 19th, 2011 7:31 pm

    Wow day 3 finish …….. can’t wait for tomorrow!!! Only 10 days to go ………… hubby took the battery out of the scale so I can’t weigh myself every hour !!!! He promised to give it back on Friday for me to weigh YEPIE …….. so excited. I feel great this is the best diet I’ve ever been on.

    @Angelique how the constipation going?

  183. by ShashNo Gravatar October 19th, 2011 8:23 pm

    Hey people… finished my day 4 successfully….
    But I’m really wondering that do we really need to consume all the food as per the portion mentioned… I mean its sometimes too much for me and I really cant finish it all…. so is it ok to just eat only till I’m full rather than forcing myself to finish everything???

    Secondly, how much do we really need to work out during this diet??? if we dont work out will the diet not be effective???

    Please help….

    Hi Tanya.

    Was happy to be able to get rid of the constipation by letting nature take its very long course( wink wink). On Day 7 today and just not a happy camper. Aunt Flo came to visit yesterday so was very close to cheating and giving into the craves. Two helpings of carrots proved to be too much so did not eat enough last night and woke up to a very empty stomach which not a good thing when only having lemon tea for breakfast.Sorry just not having a good mental day. Was stupid to weigh myself and then was upset as I had put on weight and then was cross at myself for even weighing myself when I am bloated. Looking forward tonights anything you want supper and then hopefully can start with a better mental place tomorrow. :)

  186. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 20th, 2011 8:32 am

    I’m on day 4 today … weight 77.5 ……… I’m 2.5 down.

    @Shash I’m very unfit and I started going to gym for 30 minutes only on Monday. Bicycle for 15 min on level 2 and treadmill 15 min on level 3. Otherwise I will die. If you can’t go to gym …. walk around the block or take the stairs at work even 15 min exercise will do – Good luck

    @Glad to hear the constipation is under control. Please dont give up please please please. We are in the same boat Aunt Flo came to visit this morning … but Im not gonna give up. At least you have the steak for lunch and a NICE dinner. Im starting with carrots today – HANG IN THERE GIRL!!

  187. by ShashNo Gravatar October 20th, 2011 9:23 am

    @Tanya: Thanks Tanya…. I do the walking bit but not for very long…. moreover my concerns is that do I really need to eat the complete portions… coz at times I really feel full with only half the meal and then I feel like throwing up if I continue to eat…..

    Me, my bro & his girlfirend are doing this diet…… we all need to lose atleast 10 kgs… I just hope it works for us… ;o))

  188. by SpakesNo Gravatar October 20th, 2011 10:03 am

    Hi everyone… i’ve always wanted to do this diet but not had enough guts. after reading all yo post i feel inspired. Tommorow will be my 1st day. wish me luck.

  189. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 20th, 2011 12:42 pm

    Feeling much better mentally now. Devoured my steak and apples (wierd combo). Went to the shops during lunch as a walk and bought my groceries for week 2. Just really tired and stress at work not helping. Day just seems very long.

  190. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 20th, 2011 3:46 pm

    Hi Everyone
    @shash when I drink to much water I fell like throwing up when I eat…. but I’msooo thirsty.

    Hey just wanted to check can I use code fish with white fish or tuna…. coz its really very difficult to find code or trout or plaice…..

    kindly suggest… please help ;o))

  194. by SpakesNo Gravatar October 21st, 2011 10:32 am

    Day 1, had my black coffee and looking forward to my lunch. The day is going so slow. but i’m staying positive. My starting weight is 112kg.

  195. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 21st, 2011 12:47 pm

    day 8. All going well. Only problem was my spinach that I froze from last week had a funny taste to it so instead of risking food poisoining I rather threw it away and just ate the eggs. Not feeling hungry though?? And only had a litre of water so far. Was going to try to eat smaller quanties of the all you can eat this time around, so all good if no appetitie. Ha ha ha. Tonight grilled steak, but first another litre. Have a good weekend everyone and check up on you and your amazing weight results on Monday. Hoping for another two.

  196. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 21st, 2011 1:18 pm

    Today is difficult BUT i will not give up. We have baseball tomorrow and Sunday I have to be strong !!! Its only days ….

  197. by ShashNo Gravatar October 21st, 2011 7:43 pm

    Helllooooo….completed my day 6 successfully…. was at the verge of giving up though coz my bro and his girlfriend dropped out…. but thankfully my husband convinced me to continue…. just hoping for the results to be as I’m expecting by the end of the 13th day…. 7 more days to go…… but some how I really dont find much of a difference…. is there something wrong???

  198. by KataNo Gravatar October 21st, 2011 8:35 pm

    Question: what happens if I split the lunch into 2 and have them separately first at 12am and later 4pm because if I eat at lunch time I won’t survive until dinner. The portion is still small and I eat the food whatever is on the menu. Like I ate a bit of the carrots yesterday and later ate the cheese…??? It’s day 6 for me, can’t wait for Sunday evening.

  199. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 22nd, 2011 4:47 pm

    Day 9 had my ham and oh my gawd still hungry. No more ham to eat. If I was going to cheat it wud be tonight. Just drank another half litre to keep hungry away. Think I must go crawl into bed and go slepp rather to get my mind off of food. So close to the end now to cheat.

  200. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 23rd, 2011 7:22 am

    So was good and bad. Hahaha. Sucked on a chip to get the flavour and then spat it out. See why u should not carry on with the diet as it gets to much.

  201. by KataNo Gravatar October 23rd, 2011 1:47 pm

    I’m sooo disappointed. It’s day 7 and I only lost 2,5 kgs-3 kgs…I know when you are not too big like I am you loose it slowly, and I didn’t expect 10 kgs on week 1 but maybe 4-5 kgs??? Do you think the progress will speed up next week? I didn’t cheat at all I stuck to the menu although I didn’t excescise.

  202. by goodyNo Gravatar October 23rd, 2011 6:01 pm

    hi everyone, very inspired reading this site. I started the diet today and the day went fine. Can anyone suggest if ham can be substituted? I dont eat ham – someone help!!

  203. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 24th, 2011 7:17 am

    Day 8 for me ……………… start weight was 80kg and I lost 4kg last week ………… my weight now is 76kg. Looking forward to this week and hope to loose another 3kg. The weekend was difficult sitting next to the Baseball field with my water while everybody was drinking and braaing …… BUT I did not cheat and still going on. I only have today and another 5 days to go.

  204. by jessieNo Gravatar October 24th, 2011 7:49 am

    Day 8 starting weight 102.7 total loss thus far 2.7kgs hope the losses are more this week.Hang in there everyone

  205. by SpakesNo Gravatar October 24th, 2011 9:09 am

    Its now day 4 and have lost 2.5kg thus far. I must say that it gets easier to follow the diet as days go by. I’ll try and put in some exercise tonight. Lets do it gals & boys.

  206. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 24th, 2011 9:10 am

    Day 11. Feeling very down today. Still busy with my period, which I think the diet is causing as I am on the injection and was supposed to go this week for my next shot. Started spotting on Wednesday and still going. Weightloss is 4.5 kg so far, was so hoping for more as only lost 300 grams since day 6. Finding that breakfast and lunch time just not hungry and then starving at night. Normally have four slices of bread in morning, today the second slice is still staring at me. I know I should be happy that I am not hungry but finding it very strange and just wrong? Can’t look at a green salad anymore. Going to enjoy the apples and yogurt tonight as a nice change.

  207. by MandyNo Gravatar October 24th, 2011 3:06 pm

    Day 2- havent weighed myself. Feeling no difference, I hope there will be a change by end of the week…off to jog- 5kms.

  208. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 8:01 am

    Morning Ladies, today is day 9 for me …………… lost 4.5kg still have today and 4 more days to go. Last 4 days I only lost 0.5 and plenty cm’s ? Maybe because I just don’t have time to go to Gym anymore.

    @Angelique …….. it must be the diet because I’m also still on my period (which I normally only have like 3 days) and I’m ……….. very emotional (cried at the Baseball on Sunday because of a comment somebody made LOL). I know I’m an emotional eater and now I can’t eat when I get upset.

    Overall I feel good ……… and can fit into my size 36 jeans.

    GOOD LUCK TO EVERYBODY AND HANG IN THERE LADIES ITS ONLY DAYS !!!!

  209. by jessieNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 8:31 am

    Wow the support from you guys makes it worth continuing,was so close to giving up yesterday. Day 9 have not weighed again today only lost 2.7kg as of yesterday.Also experience a bit of spotting which should not happen as I have the marena in but it comes and goes. Four more days hope I see some drastic changes

  210. by goodyNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 10:16 am

    hi …has anyone experienced constant headaches while on this diet. I’m on day 3 and the headaches don’t seem to go away.

    Hi Goody. Headaches should be gone by day 4. -ts your body detoxing. Happens to me on alll diets.6inding it amazing how everyone is expierancing funny menstraul cycles.Day 12 going ok. Just suffering from constipation again.

  212. by goodyNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 11:02 am

    hi angelique…thanks for this. I am hoping my headaches do away tomorrow as m on day 3 and my scale is 2 kgs down. I intend to stick to this.

  213. by IllyNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 12:06 pm

    On day 3, constant headaches, started my period yesterday. Started at 73.6kg, want to wait till the end of the week to find out how much I’ve lost. Is there any diet pills you can consume with this diet to increase the weight loss. Going home in December and want to look my best for my boyfriend.

  214. by MandyNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 2:33 pm

    Guys,please help! Does Nandoos chicken qualify as grilled de-skinned chicken for day 6? What is lemon tea? Can i use tea with lemon juice if i dnt have lemon tea?

  215. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 5:41 pm

    Hi Mandy. I make rooibos tea with lemon juice. Tomrrow is last day so not worried if wrong.Don’t think Nandos will work as they bas the chicken. I just chuck a chicken breast with salt and pepper into the microwave.

  216. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 25th, 2011 6:53 pm

    If you get headache do not take any tablets or capsules, just drink extra water or hot water with cloves.
    @Jessie which diet are you following? The one placed by Hendrika September 8th, 2011 12:27 pm or the one on top of this page?
    @Angelique good luck with your last day tomorrow please let us know how much weight you lost.
    Day 9 done and dusted I have 4 days to go …..

    Thanks Tanya. I happened to take a panado on my Day 3 for my headache – whoops. At least now for future session. Did not know about hot water and cloves for a headache – learn something new everyday.

    Looking for a low carb eating plan to follow on this after this diet. Anybody got any suggestions? Always just find it so hard to cook and prepare foods without bread, potatoes, rice, pasta or flour. I am Insulin resistance and am not supposed to eat any carbs really. I start getting bored and introduce some carbs, then land up eating all carbs – miss my pasta.
    :(

    Good Morning everyone…….Day 10 weighed this morning and 3.7kg down absolutely excited.@Tanya I am on the diet posted by Hendrika. I also suffered with chronic constipation on this diet but took some herbal laxatives called softlax.I also seem to think that this diet works purely because of the little amount of calories taken in. I also experienced that as the diet progresses you tend to not feel so hungry and overeat than usual,not sure whether you guys experienced that.Intending to go on the 3 day heart foundation diet from Monday as I have lost quite a bit on that one the last time as well.

  220. by MandyNo Gravatar October 26th, 2011 11:49 am

    Thanks a lot Angelique, I weighed myself yesterday and have lost 1.6kg from the last time i weighed which is 3 weeks ago. I might have lost more because i started this diet because i was scared that i had gained in the 3 weeks as i was pigging out. Feel good, i cant wait to finish my period. Maybe i will see more progress. Will weigh myself in Day 7 and let u guys know….Day 4 for me today, no headaches and no hunger!!! Cant wait to finish!! Having my carrots and cheese as we speak…..!!!

  221. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar October 27th, 2011 7:59 am

    So depending on which scale I use, I either lost 4.6kg or 5.4kg. Still can’t see it anywhere though,but just happy the scale is lower. Going to keep trying to not eat carbs and eat better. Got used to black coffee with sweetner so will keep on with that – the milk is just extra calories.All th best to everyone still on the diet, will check on you every now and then.

  222. by TanyaNo Gravatar October 27th, 2011 10:21 am

    Im on day 11 today and lost a 5kg ……… I did not follow the diet strictly. I tried but my husband made me Black forest tea instead of Lemon Tea on Day 7 and I think that was the problem. I’ve only lost 1kg since Sunday … but I’m not gonna give up. GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE and please don’t drink Black Forest Tea on this diet !!! LOL

    Hi ladies

    I have had this diet since last week, went through it over and over again and then went to buy the ingredients last week… Today is my first day, not easy but I made it… Good thing is I don’t eat too much anyways but having to monitor what I eat and when I eat it is a bit of a challenge… Over the weekend was feeling tired, nauseous, a bit dizzy and was craving – wasn’t sure if starting the diet now is a good idea… but I did… so far so good, all is well…

    Well I normally drink a lot of water, and squat at home every day and that has helped me but now I really do want to lose at least 10 kg and reading your comments has really inspired me so so so much… I have been going to pee a lot, not sure why though…

    As for the scale, we have never been friends, I don’t weigh myself at all… scales can be really depressing but my clothes will help me more than the scale…

    Today I felt really tired, I mean really tired but no headaches…

    Hi Guys I’m on day 7 lost 3kg and 33cm so far. Can someone recommend a diet I can follow after my 13 days are done I still need to loose 17kg’s to be at a healthy weight this diet has motivated me so much to get to my goal weight but I know it’s dangerous to continue it after 13 days. So please if anyone can recommend a follow-up diet that works. Thanks.

  229. by MinnieNo Gravatar November 2nd, 2011 11:57 am

    Hi Antonetta,

    A friend of mine tried the jump start juice and she lost ~ 2.5 kg in 1 week and she had cheated. You can try that one. You can buy the juicer, it comes with the diet of how u should prepare the juice for 7 days. It targets the stomach area mostly. I am thinking of doing it next.

  230. by kysha23No Gravatar November 2nd, 2011 12:43 pm

    hey all, iam starting my day one of the diet tomorrow…i hope i get to keep up.
    ive tried this diet before but i only made it to day six but with lots of cheatings but am hoping to persist this time.

  231. by AmandaNo Gravatar November 3rd, 2011 12:31 am

    my roommate and i also started this diet and we are currently on day 4… honestly speaking it is not easy at all. we eat and consume the food specified just the way stated, we don not even add any sort of seasoning to the food. we exercise everyday to help with the amount of weight loss. i even stopped smoking as i was so paranoid to even think it was going to mess up our diet but it helped especially when we exercise. we are hoping to drop at least 2 jean sizes by the end of the diet. im grateful i have someone who is as motivated as; my roommate. thanx guyz please carry on motivating us all.

    Hello guys

    I don’t know where to begin. I’ve tried every diet in the book, wasted lots of money on detox diets and gym. I’m not close to giving uo because I’m always on the website searching for better diets and quick fixes. I will doing groceries soon so I should be able to start the soon before christmas or so. I lost weight on detox diets but i regained over winter. I’m so glad I found you guys, I’m so inspired.

  233. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar November 3rd, 2011 6:49 am

    Hi there gals. Glad to hear more are starting on the diet. Can’t wait to go back on. Started the ” Miracle heart 3 day diet on Tuesday and today is my last day. My daughter woke me up at 4:30 so today is going to be rough with no coffee. Down another kilo so very happy. Still trying to find a low carb eating plan that does not involve me having to have eggs and sausage for breakfast every morning – some of the eating plans out there are wierd. Good luck to all. Counting down the days till I can start again.

    Can you really drink diet soda on this diet? I notice it is not on any of the other 13 day metabolism diet sites?? I ask as I just love diet soda and will drink some if I am allowed. I’m on day three and have lost 3kgs.

  242. by TaniaNo Gravatar November 8th, 2011 10:05 am

    Hi Joelene, I only drink water …. I’m following the diet posted by hendrika not the one at the top. I dont know about the other people but for me water only works well … its only for 13 days

    I want to know on the Metabolism diet if I can take my preworkout supplement, per serving there is only 47 Calories per 500ml, but does have creatine in for recovery and strength.

    would like to know if this would affect the diet negatively?

    Thank you!

  257. by TESNo Gravatar November 13th, 2011 6:10 pm

    What about vinegar/lemon as a dressing for the green salad and does that mean lettuce and cucumber?

  258. by TESNo Gravatar November 14th, 2011 6:34 am

    The coffee made me ill yesterday, can I do tea. Any way felt much better last night, my hubby made some amazing steak. Ive now lost 1.6, Ive got much too loose I’m extremely overweight, thanks for the info Angie.
    I still need to know if I can use lemon and vinegar as part of my salad dressing. And what can I use for the green salad

  259. by AngieNo Gravatar November 14th, 2011 7:07 am

    Hi Tess, no seasonings other than salt and pepper – sorry. One normally feels kak on the second and third day – its your body detoxing from all the toxins in your body. You will find once day three done, its a breeze – you also never want to see ham and steak for a while. I had chicken polony last night instead of the ham and still lost another 1.1 this morning. I have looked up green salad on the internet and from what I can find if its green its a green salad. This is my second time on the diet and doing things a bit different as tired of salads, so instead of green salad and steak yesterday for lunch I had grilled steadk, cucumber sticks and steamed brocolli. I know its not accurate but have not waited the full three months yet to go back on the diet. My warped mind is telling me that if I jumble things up a bit then can’t do any damage. Tess I think if this is your first time on the diet, I think stick to it 100%.

  260. by TESNo Gravatar November 14th, 2011 12:47 pm

    Hi Angie

    Thanks so much appreciate it, I’m feeling good so far, how much did u loose the first time ? Yah its actually going so well for me although I can’t believe that you can eat unlimited bread !!!!

  267. by cherylNo Gravatar November 15th, 2011 8:39 am

    Hi guys

    I’m now on day 3 of the diet, i’ve lost 1kg since i started, i’m also a bit disappointed because i expected to have lost 3 by day 3. A week before i started this diet i had start to exercise, for at least an hour a day, and within 4 days i had lost 2 kilos but i had since stopped after starting on this diet. Now i’m thinking what would happen if i combine the two, diet and exercise. I honestly believe that you never fully lose the maximum possible weight without some exercise, i think all the ladies that lose hectically have had some form of exercise. So come on ladies, lets get to it, no pain no gain is the moto, i’ll keep you posted still on my progress.

  268. by AngieNo Gravatar November 15th, 2011 12:04 pm

    DAY4 gong well, just hope I remeber to take my yogurt home, eating my boiled carrots and melted cheese. Water not doing so well today, not even finished half a litre.

  269. by MeNo Gravatar November 16th, 2011 8:34 am

    hey guys.

    Im on the 13day diet and it is AMAZING. I started 10 days ago at 74kgs. Day 3 was the worst as i thought i was gonna lose my marbles, but i soldiered on. I weighed myself on day 7 and i was 68kgs. That is a total of 6kgs!!!! loving it. I will weigh myself on day 14 and will let you know what the total weight will be. but i definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to lose the extra flab coz it works!!!!

    Gudluck to those who are yet to start. and to those who are struggling with it, it is so worth it.

    All going well on my side I’m enjoying my food soo much, although yogurt wasn’t great tonight, but had a nice big bowl of fruit salad. Im on DAY 4 and weighed in this morning and ive lost 2.6 kg’s. So hang in there ladies. I look forward to my food and try not to focus on things Im not found of. What Ive down to alleviate boredom of eating just ham or just steak etc is that Im buying different variations of these. last night I ate four different types of ham. I love the version Im on because mostly I can eat till Im satisfied, sometimes may be hungry between meals but not tempted to scoff something- this is a big win for me.. Does anyone know if you need to stay within the constraints of the diet for Saturday night- eat what you would like? Im not sure if I can do the version with the restrictions with the proteins. Keep it up ladies and hang in there!

  274. by ROZANNENo Gravatar November 17th, 2011 12:30 pm

    Hi everyone

    I’m on day 4 of the diet and expect to have lost at least 10kg by the end of this diet.
    I weighed myself before I started and will weigh again the 20th. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

    Must say day 1 was the worst for me thank goodness I suvvied it. Today I feel abit hungry since I already ate my lunch (carrots and chees) but will keep on drinking water till supper time.

    I’m very hopefull that I’ll reach my goal weight.

    Hi Ladies

    I”m very weary of “fad” diets and “cutting” calories as you land up slowing your metabolism down. I must say I’m on day 5 and haven’t felt this energised in a while which is very encouraging after usually feeling lethargic and fatigued when you cut down your food in take.

    I’m not over weight and fairly active, but I’ve been struggling to drop the winter kg’s. I’m very chuffed to say i’ve lost 1.8kg in 4 days which for me is unbelievable.

    Thanks for all the encouragement and motivationals above, it really helps keep one going!

    Hi,
    I am on day 3, but very, very hungry. any suggestions to curb the hunger attack?

  285. by OlwethuNo Gravatar November 23rd, 2011 11:31 am

    @ Hungry don’t think about the food it only gets easier from there ………Think positive what do you want to achieve at the end of this exercise ……….don’t lose hope and give up you are almost there ……..All the best!!!!!

  288. by HungyNo Gravatar November 24th, 2011 7:49 am

    Thanks Superstar, the motivation will get me through another day!

    Hello ladies. I am starting my diet on monday, I am doing it with my friend, we will be supporting each other throughout this 14 days journey, I cannot wait to start and I hope for good results. I have to look good during xmas. I have a good weightloss plan for when I get off the metabolism diet. The diet includes, boiled eggs for BF, 100g steak and 110g vegetables for Lunch and 100g vegetables with any type of protein dinner. The person that gave it to me lost over 13kgs over 3months. Goodluck and thanks for the support.

  298. by AnnieNo Gravatar November 29th, 2011 8:34 am

    I just finished the 13 day diet yesterday and I must say I loved the results. I lost 7kg’s and I hope to keep it off with healthy diet hence forth. T’was a bit of a torture teh first two days as I also felt nausea and headaches. Had serious cravings but never gave in on them after watching the kilos drop every day! I would mind repeating this again after a year or so. All the best to those in the course of the diet and hey, don’t give in!

  299. by TsholofeloNo Gravatar November 30th, 2011 4:09 am

    Congrats Annie. My first day was yesterday, i loved the steak and green salad but fact that it wasnt spiced to my hearts desire but its cool its only a matter of days. My start weight wa 78.5kgs, I would love to lose the 8.5kgs and deal with the 10kgs next year. I have a pic of a skinny me pasted on my wall, everytime I think of cheating I look at the pic. Still a long way to go though…. 12 days

  302. by TsholofeloNo Gravatar December 1st, 2011 5:58 am

    Today is day 3 and I am not feeling hungry at all. I must say I was feeling a bit lonely last night. Had a headache so I decided to sleep. I havent weighed again and I’m not going to weigh until day 14. Thanks ladies and goodluck to the newcomers. Sibulele no snacking at all. You can can snack on fruit when you come off the diet girl. This is a weight reduction diet.

  307. by TsholofeloNo Gravatar December 5th, 2011 5:43 am

    Hey guys, I forgot my lemon for the lemon tea and I will be home by 12 mid day. I will preparing the steak and fruit by then. I am busy going around asking my collegues if they have lemon juice just lying around. I know its foolish of me to forget it but it happens, especially when you are on this diet. LOL! I am hoping to lose 6kgs on this diet. So far I have lost 3kgs and Its day 7. My day 8 is tomoro. I am going to have a normal supper, chicken rice and a few salads. I miss reall food, i hope i wont put on any pound or gram for that matter. This weight thing has depressed me to a point of no return. Thats all I ever talk about, weight!

  316. by TeeNo Gravatar December 28th, 2011 6:14 pm

    Day 1: I have just had my steak and an it was solo good. I am glad day one is over
    Does anyone know if it’s ok to do extreme workouts on this diet…. I don’t wanna faint at gym!

    Thank you all for the motivation :)

  317. by TeeNo Gravatar December 29th, 2011 9:19 am

    Day 2: yikes having a bit of a tough day… It is only 10:17 but I am starving. I woke up solo full. I am so ready to eat my lunch…Nini hope to write later with a successful update!

    I also have a hectic gym session with my personal trainer… Again I am afraid I might faint today… Cross fingers for me!

  318. by TeeNo Gravatar December 29th, 2011 10:23 pm

    Day 2 cont: so I am done with day two… I had a hectic gym session with my personal trainers…. My body is exhausted! I did by energade by mistake, but had to empty it out and only get water :(

    Went to watch mission impossible ans resisted popcorn and drinks. The ham and water were gross but I chowed them like there was no tomorrow…lol

    Is this diet tough… YES, but doable :)

  319. by TeeNo Gravatar December 30th, 2011 8:47 am

    Day 3: well it has been a good start to the day… Scale says I have lost 2.5 kgs. I still do not believe it. Wondering if this is because of the diet or because of the crazy personal training sessions I have been doing!

    Anyway will give feedback tonight

  320. by TeeNo Gravatar December 31st, 2011 3:10 pm

    Day 4: I did not update day 3 cont but it ended well. The calories were very few but I was fine all night.

    So I have swapped out day 4 and 5 because today is new yrs eve. I really did not want to cheat so I made sure fish and steak was today! Then on new yrs day I will go back to eating very low calories. So far I have not eaten lunch yet. Will update when the day is done.

  321. by TeeNo Gravatar January 1st, 2012 10:12 am

    Day 5: I am feeling a little more hungry today. Has two slices of bread tea this morning… I now think I have lost 3 kgs. If the gym scale says the same I will be blown away! That would meat that this diet s crazy effective.

    Don’t know how I will make this day, with such few calories to take in on née years day! Wish me luck!

    BTW: this sis day 4s diet on day 5!

  322. by TeeNo Gravatar January 2nd, 2012 10:33 am

    Day 6: wow I am so ready to ditch this diet! Does not help that this is that time of the month and baby is draining me today. I nearly bit into his hot cross bun! Lol

    So I have eaten two slices of bread with tea and now awaiting the lunch of a slice of chicken and lettuce… Blah!
    Ah well let’s hope we get over this day… Don’t even know if I I am losing weight anymore #fellingsorry for myself lol

  323. by TeeNo Gravatar January 3rd, 2012 9:14 am

    Day 7: so day 6 brought no quitting or cheating… But day 7 is TOUGH!!! OMW I am uncomfotably starving. I have a good mind to eat some water melon just go keep the diet going. I though it would be easier to maintain the diet because I am back at work… But nope…. Dying!

    Will water melon really mess us the metabolism thing?

  324. by CarmyNo Gravatar January 3rd, 2012 12:35 pm

    Hi, This is day 1 of the diet for me. I’ve decided that I don’t want to weigh myself during the diet, but rather see the results when the 13 days is over. Wish me luck.

  325. by SamNo Gravatar January 3rd, 2012 1:40 pm

    Hi Guys

    I started with this diet today, 64.5 going for 50…
    Is it necessary to “excer” while dieting, cause I really dont have any time left with two babies

  326. by TeeNo Gravatar January 4th, 2012 6:57 am

    Day 8: after feeling very hungry and low yesterday I decided to add water melon in the morning and instead of lamb chops I had grilled chicken breast and veggies. If I have ruined the diet, then be it… But I am sticking to it till the end.

    On day 8 I feel so great, energetic and about 3kgs down – goal weight was 55 kgs on my home scale. Now I want 55 on gym scale – that’s another 3kgs…. I believe I can drop that in the next 5days!! I really am feeling great today…. Even my jeans are a little loose! :)

  327. by CarmyNo Gravatar January 4th, 2012 7:52 am

    I think day 1 went well. I stuck to it. I didn’t have time to go shop for steak yesterday, so i substituted it with lamb chops, with all the excess fat removed. I added a tiny bit of salt and dried herbs. I’m having a cup of coffee now and will have one slice of wholewheat toast for breakfast – with no butter/margerine. I’m feeling confident, although there is still that part of me that wants to give up. I think I weigh about 110kg, so I really can’t afford to give up. I also told my family about my decision and they support me. Good luck to everyone on the diet. We can do it!

  328. by helenaNo Gravatar January 4th, 2012 11:21 am

    I did this diet, and lose about 4kg, the first day after the diet, I had quite a big meal for the next 3 days and I gained 6kg back! What is wrong? Ain’t this diet suppose to boost my metabolism? :( I am so dissapointed, I gained even more than the weight I lose. Useless 13 days scarification. Somebody help me, I am so confused.

  329. by TeeNo Gravatar January 4th, 2012 12:28 pm

    Hi Helena… sorry about that! This is the first time I am trying out this diet (personal trainer gave it to me) and I am no expert BUT I doubt that is changes one’s metabolism (just my opinion). What I think it does is teach us how to eat differently and more healthily. The 2lts of water is also an amazing cleanser to the system.

    This diet seems to help with the loss of water weight and hense the drastic drop of kgs. You therefore have to continue to eat healthily and drink loads of water afterwards. Your body has to readjust to normal meals – DO NOT eat whatever you want on day 14 etc… keep up the healthy smaller portion afterwards. that way you will continue to loose healthily!

    That is my 2c worth :)

    @Carmy – do not give up ever…push through the 13days just to see what happens. And oh.. dont substitute foods too much.

  330. by CarmyNo Gravatar January 4th, 2012 1:02 pm

    Thanks Tee. I’m so determined to stick to it and this site is helping me to stick to my goal. I agree with you that it doesn’t alter the metabolism and that it teaches us to eat healthier, so i’ve already decided to keep this up after day 13 and I believe that with everyone’s support on this site that it’s possible!

  331. by AngieNo Gravatar January 4th, 2012 3:50 pm

    Day 3 – started on Jan 2- been going ok. Done this before so know the pitfalls. Did a 45Min Zumba class last night and then did some home exercises-was amazed at how energetic I felt on so little calories. Was more amazed that I did not feel worse this morning- just it stiff- but loosened up in the pool teaching my kid to swim. Had a litle nap after lunch and woke up starving ready to attack the ham salad in the fridge for supper. Decided to take kid to play at Macdonalds- wierd I know but safer than home where food is free. Nursing a bottle of water until its time to go home and make her supper. Going to go look for my pilates DVD from the many last times I was on a diet lol. See u on Day 4

  332. by AngieNo Gravatar January 4th, 2012 6:56 pm

    @ Camy- I found the last time its easier to stay on diet if the whole family eats what u having. Like on Day 1 made everyonr steak eggs and chips and then cud still sit with them and eat supper. For tonight I made a big bowl of salad took out my portion and added ham and then for the others added other salad and made them fish to go with it. I find I don’t feel so secluded then – also good for the family to eat healthier.

  333. by TeeNo Gravatar January 5th, 2012 7:56 am

    Day 9: oh nooooo I took the wrong lunch today! Spinach, eggs and tomato… Oh well.

    I feel a bit tired today, but it’s cause of the hectic gym session from yesterday. Today is my last personal training session… And then after that is all about running and p90x!

    Good luck to you all with the diet :)

  334. by AngieNo Gravatar January 5th, 2012 2:12 pm

    I love cooked carrots with melted cheese. Yum yum. Hoping I can make an interesting supper from the fruit that I do eat and the bland yogurt. Day 4 going ok- just need to catch up on the the water. Tried the pilates tape but don’t have the core strength for it so will continue with my Zumba and weight training and try it again later.

  335. by AngieNo Gravatar January 5th, 2012 6:05 pm

    Day four over- made it past the fruit- I normally only eat apples but managed to work around the gag reflex and got a banana and some grapes down as well. Been on this diet before and never expieranced a runny tummy before. Today I have had to go twice- already the carrots have exited. Bit worried. The last I waa on this both myself and another two ladies sufferred irregular periods.Anybody expierancing weird stuff?

  336. by TeeNo Gravatar January 5th, 2012 6:36 pm

    Day 9 cont: ola people… Had an extremely tough workout this afternoon – really not a happy camper about how weak I was. in terms of the diet I feel awesome! I did have a little bit of muesli, but back on diet dinner! I am having ham and yoghurt!

    4 more days and I feel like this has gotten easy!

    @angie… My P’s seemed fine.

  337. by TeeNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 9:05 am

    Day 10: I was sooooo hungry yesterday…. My little man woke up at 2:00 and struggled to sleep …. The hunger was crazy but I did not cheat.

    Today I really miss real food :( the only good thing is that I have 3 more days to go and really feel wonderful. Enjoying the flatter non-bloated tummy. My weight loss has halted – I think! Still on about 3kgs loss, but I don’t mind… My body feels good:)

    Celery and tomato for lunch! #hunger!!n

  338. by CarmyNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 10:56 am

    I had a terrible day 3. I was sooo hungry. I cheated by eating fruit throughout the day and my child was eating chips, so i had a few- tasted so good! I had dinner at 6pm last night and added a slice of wholewheat bread. Back on the diet today. Day 4. I fell off the horse, but i’m back on.

  339. by TeeNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 1:23 pm

    @carmy don’t even think of giving up… Like I am right now lol
    All I am thinking about is fooooooood… Real food. But I have to see what happens after day 13!

    Don’t worry… Right here with u!

  340. by AngieNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 4:22 pm

    Day 5 went ok. Battled temptation at every turn but made it thru. Joining parents for a braai now so piutting my steak on the braai. Going to do tomorrows chicken lunch as well.Finished my two litres but still thirsty. Was in such a rush this morning that did not weigh myself.

  341. by AngieNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 6:38 pm

    Damn so close to cheating!!!!Marshmallows on the fire smell amazing. My daughter keeps shoving things under my nose.

  342. by AngieNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 6:43 pm

    Damn so close to cheating!!!!Marshmallows on the fire smell amazing. My daughter keeps shoving things under my nose. Her new game is to make me pick up something bring it to my mouth so that she can slap my hand and say no Mommy

  343. by TeeNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 7:40 pm

    Day 10: don’t know hoe I feel today… Just don’t know. I don’t want to quit but am not feeling the diet this weekend!

    Help!

  344. by JohannNo Gravatar January 6th, 2012 10:34 pm

    I just finished my 2nd day, so far so good really. Amazing how long this blog has been running!

  345. by AngieNo Gravatar January 7th, 2012 6:00 am

    @ Tee- Hold strong- You”ve come so close to the end. Don’t give Temptation the stastifaction of winning. Read somewhere- Nothing tastes as good as being thinner feels.;ust Hold on. Everttime u want to give up, add that cheat thing to your Day14 supper instead and then u have something to look forward to.

  346. by JohannNo Gravatar January 7th, 2012 11:50 am

    @Angie, i did this diet last year and lost 7kg, but still had had about 15kg to go. Instead of carrying on with healthy eating i enduldged in all the bad foods i craved during the 13 days. I promised myself just one week of this bad habits but the one week became months! This time however i plan to start a new eating lifestyle on day 14 in order to loose all the weight i need to loose. I think its the kiss of failure for people to think of day 14 treats unless they have super strong will powers to keep it at day 14 and not beyond!
    @Tee start to plan NOW for day 14 and beyond!

  347. by AngieNo Gravatar January 7th, 2012 4:55 pm

    Day 6 – very long hot day! Couldn’t face another boiled egg so added water and made scrambled egg with cutup carrots. Actually quite nice. :) @Johann- did not mean that one shoul go apeshit for supper on Day 7 +8 but its something to keep you motivated to get to those days. If I do not cheat now Then I can have a bite on Day14. No one is saying to go on and eat. Evrything that you craved all in one meal- that’s what got us here in the first place. All the best to everyone else. Hope your Day went ok and was temptation free. See you all tomorrow.

  348. by JohannNo Gravatar January 7th, 2012 7:40 pm

    @Angie very true words :) I finished day 3 with ease although the ham went down harder than last night, tomorrow looks better with the fruit salad

  349. by TeeNo Gravatar January 8th, 2012 3:37 am

    Ola beautiful people…. The diet ends on day 12 for me…. I know i know. Don’t worry this is not about temptation of foods etc (maybe it is – lol). I will probably eat day 13 foods, but will start the day with proper cereal/oats. I start an extreme workout program and a marathon running program on Monday. So I will need proper intake of foods.

    I generally ate healthy, just needs that portion control help! Glad I am doing the diet and will let u know how day12 goes.

    @angie, johann than you for the words of wisdom. I so hear you about day 14 being a life style change and not a ‘indulge in the nasty foods’ kind of start!

    Good luck for the day guys!! Let’s have a cheat free day!

  350. by AngieNo Gravatar January 8th, 2012 1:29 pm

    @Tee. All the best for th new programme. Great start to the year.Siting at the park with my daughter, doing leg exercises like calf lifts etc using the bench- luckily only ones here so no funny stares. Still have not decided on what to have for supper, but making sure I get my exercise in beforehand. Bit slow on the water today@Johann, I know ham is difficult to get down.One good thing this diet did for me is get me to eat more fruit. I have now added grapes and my bananas to my usual apples and watermelon. Scale saying 5 down but still can’t really see it myself. Would give me great boost if someone had to pass a remark. !ack toork tomorrow, so hope that does not throw a spanner in the works. All the best for everyone.

  351. by TanyNo Gravatar January 9th, 2012 8:44 am

    Good Morning Everyone and Angie. I’ve been on the diet in November and lost 5kg – gained 3kg over December because I went crazy on sweets, cake, junkfood and alcohol.

    I hate the spinach …. any suggestions on how to make spinach more eatable

  353. by AngieNo Gravatar January 9th, 2012 12:15 pm

    Hi Tany – welcome back. I hate spinach as well and have done the following: Mixed my spinach with chopped up boiled egg added black pepper and salt and made it like a salad – was not that bad. Today is My Day 8 so this time around instead of boiling the eggs I mixed it with a bit of water and made an omelette putting the spinach inside. I have some extra on the side as well in case I am really hungry afterwards. I know its not sticking to the diet rules but boiled eggs are so dry.Eating my omelette now and not bad if I do say so myself. :)
    Need to jack up my water not even finished my first 500ml bottle, normally I am almost finished my 2l by now. :(

  354. by TanyNo Gravatar January 9th, 2012 12:35 pm

    Angie thanks for the reply. The omelette sound nice much better … And on now day 8 how much weight have you lost?

  355. by chimfNo Gravatar January 9th, 2012 3:56 pm

    amon nmy day 7 and God am starving! its 5pm and cant wait to have dinner! the diet is effective…lost 3kg by end of day 6

  356. by AngieNo Gravatar January 9th, 2012 4:00 pm

    I just got my first weightloss comment!!!! Whoop whoop.

    @ Tany – I have lost 5kg so far. Battled a bit with the water today, only have a 500ml bottle left, which I will have with supper. Just so happy so one noticed – silly I know, but keeps you motivated to stick to the diet. All I know is I am getting so sick of steak, carrots and ham. Going to go home now, cook my steak, drink my water, do my Zumba and some weight exercises and then write in my food journal. Now really motivated to do more than just following the eating plan. Haven’t Zumba’d since Thursday.

  357. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 8:12 am

    Wow Angie that is great Well done. So in total you lost 10kg since November 2011 …. thats an achievement. I love this diet because it works every time. Yesterday was easy (except for the spinach). 12days to go.

  358. by ElmsNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 10:07 am

    Heya, day two for me. So far so good. I must say this blog keeps me motivated, seeing how people have reached their goals. I have a Mantra every morning… only 12 more days, only 12 more days ;) Normally dont have a issue with water. Drink 4l on a normal day, battling with water today, only down 1l. Not feeling very hungry… that normal?

  359. by TeeNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 11:11 am

    Hey everyone – hope you are all doing great with the diet :)
    Well Some feedback…. I lost 3.5kgs which may seem little but the way some clothes fit is awesome. I am also doing extreme training and am a little Lighter which is great for my running!

    Change metabolism? I don’t know, but I am not as hungry as I used to be… And eat a lot less and drink tons of water.
    So I hope you all have great results too…

  360. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 11:51 am

    HI Elms I’m also on day 2 today….. welcome to the group.
    Had an awesome lunch with my steak and green salad – had an orange today (im tired of the apples i always have)
    @Tee well done ….. I think that if you do extreme training the muscle you build weights more than fat. In your case you much have lost plenty cm’s.
    @Angie tonight is ham again …. ham and water GOOD LUCK.
    From tomorrow is yummy food again

  361. by AngieNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 12:13 pm

    Day 9 and just realised that I forgot my fruit at home. Only one litre down for now, but busy with the next 500ml and then the other can be for supper. Digging into my steak, lettuce and cucumber salad as I type. Damn can’ wait for spices. Tonight is Ham. yeah!!!! And stomach exercises I think.

    @Tany. Thanks very much. Remembered you from November – see we both don’t obey the 6 month rule. lol. Dont forget to deduct the weight I put on in November and December due to eating carbs. I keep thinking maybe if I just eat a little, but every little adds up – on my thighs. This time definetly going to attempt to stay away from carbs. Paid a lot of money to be told that my body can’t digest carbs but refuse to listen. New year , new outlook!

    @Elms welcome. The more water you drink the less hungry you will be. Most dieticians will tell you that when you body needs water, most of the time our brains interpret it as hungry.Only problem with drinking water is the constant trips to the loo.
    What I love most about this diet is I never crave sweet stuff.

  362. by zetNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 5:51 pm

    Day 5 have lost 1.5 kg with a looot of cheating,I’m motivated it works have done a lot of gym before only to gain more weight.Hoping to behave in my second cycle.Good Luck peeps

  363. by SuzanneNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 6:53 pm

    Hi Guys: am on Day 2,so far so good…i feel lighter,looking forward to the coming days and of course my new look:-) Good Luck Ya’ll

  364. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 10th, 2012 7:47 pm

    Today was soooo easy … Have no idea what I weigh as my scale is broken LOL. Its only been 2 days, I will be patient this time and buy a new scale on day 13.

    @Angie according to the New Metabolism Diet book I have The diet must be followed for 13days only no longer and no less. If you follow the diet strictly for the 13days you may not repeat it under any circumstances within the next 2 months … so I think we are both safe. One of my friends lost 45kg in 1 year on this diet.

    Good Luck to everybody … I feeling tired tonight so I going to bed !!!

  365. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 11th, 2012 6:06 am

    Good Morning everyone
    Today is day 3 for me and I can feel that I’ve lost some weight. Having my sasko wholewheat low gi bread and black coffee.
    I think I had to much water yesterday because I woke up twice last night for a trip to the loo. I’m tired today but I need my 8 hours a night …… and I Cant have a red bull Lol. Im not gonna give up!!
    Good luck !!!!

  366. by kagisoNo Gravatar January 11th, 2012 7:34 am

    Ok guys so i never managed to.get to day 3 of this diet or any.otherdiet for that matter. Last night i watched supersize vs superskinny, there was this woman who needed 6ppl to help her each day. Her tumy literally filled a double bed. Shr scared me, she’s dead now but left an impact in my life. Im doing this diet to kick start my weightloss. I realised there is nodiet ill e er stick to unless i want to. This one is easy for.me cos it comtains all food groups. Will most definately switch some veggies around bcos i have a lot of veggies in the house n i dont intend buying any other kind lestthese will rot. Anyway. i wont b weighing myself today and will only weigh myself after 7 days. I dont care much abt.the current numbers i want to be 80kg by the of feb n thats my goal. Last ye i.weighed 92. So here goes

  367. by AngieNo Gravatar January 11th, 2012 9:34 am

    Hi All.

    @@ Tanya – did not know that there was a book on this diet, interesting.
    @Kagiso – dont swoop the veggies around – you are setting yourself up for failure right from the start if you do that. Start with the Veggies then it will be the protien and next thing you know you are no longer on it. Rather wait a day or two until your current food is finished an then go and buy the listed foods – just my opnion.
    On Day 10 today – weight seems to have stalled :( So reducing my all you can eat. One thing I hate about this diet, all the weighloss is in the first week. Need to start planning what I am going to do come after the diet. Anybody got a Low Calorie/Low Carb eating plan?

  368. by JohannNo Gravatar January 11th, 2012 12:39 pm

    Hi you guys. Im busy with day 7 now….So far so good really, no cheating and im feeling good. Only gonna weigh tomorrow though, but i can feel my clothes feel looser. Even my sinus problems have dramatically improved, maybe because no milk?
    @Angie its really important that you have a plan for day 14 otherwise you might struggle. On day 14 im gonna start with Fit for life. my mom gave me the book and im already halfway with reading it. I think this 13 day diet is in many ways similiar because carbs and protein is very rarely combined and thats why it works so good. If you give your body less food groups to deal with the food gets better utilised and weight loss is better. So if you have fruit and just fruit for breakfast, carbs en veggies for lunch and protein and veggies for supper you must succeed.
    Another thing, i have a question/statement….dont you guys think its better to substitute the ham with pork leg chops? Ham is cured/smoked and lots of times have added junk similiar to polony. I would love you opinions on that, i think im gonna switch the ham for pork chops on day 9/10, then i have 2 extra days of braaiing!

    Good luck peoples

  369. by AngieNo Gravatar January 11th, 2012 3:21 pm

    I feel like Dr. Seuss with Green eggs and Ham. well at least the eggs weren’t green but they were hidden in between all the green salad stuff and the green beans. And Ham again tonight – Yeah :(
    @Johann – I see your point, but would be too scared to change anything just yet.

  370. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 11th, 2012 5:37 pm

    Hi All
    today was difficult … I just wanted to give up – the fruit salad and yoghurt for supper is just not going it for me …. I’m still hungry and crawing salt or vinegar … soooo Im having apple with salt
    @Angie I also noticed that all the weight loss is in the 1st week

  371. by AngieNo Gravatar January 12th, 2012 7:14 am

    I cheated last night! :( No excuses. Was feeling down and old habits die young. My kid left a marshmallow lying around and I kept staring at it. So after a half hour internal debate I said screw it, so starting sucking on it, next thing it was two and I was swallowing. Kicking myself now since I made it so close to the end and I had also chosen last night as a rest night – no exercise. But starting my Day 11 with the same weight. Going to drink more water to flush the system and will do double excercises tonight nul the affects. What bugs me most is that I turned down some yummy looking and smelling Italian choc cake, but yet marshmallows were my downfall. :) Only me – shakes head.

  372. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 12th, 2012 8:59 am

    Day 4 for me …. 3kg down whooo hoooo!!! only 9 days to go !!!

  373. by TUMINo Gravatar January 12th, 2012 11:52 am

    hi kagiso try and check this site http://www.gymjunkies.com/weight-loss diet/ rather than the 13 day plan, its easy to follow and you dont have to starve your self, u will see results and try a bit of exercing! hope it helps

  374. by KerryNo Gravatar January 12th, 2012 1:31 pm

    Hey guys!

    I am on Day 4 of the 13 day diet – and I must admit that I am really struggling. I don’t feel well and I really want a glass of wine when I get home! :)

    But having said that I am really uplifted by your stories and comments so I will be strong and stay true to the diet.

  375. by angieNo Gravatar January 12th, 2012 2:03 pm

    Day 11 is dragging!!!! Trying to cut down on my food today to make up for cheating last night, but now starving!! Supper time better come quickly – as least there is no cooking tonight. Filling up on water – even bringing the Boss each time I fill up my bottle as he also has to drink – cursing me with every glass lol.
    @Tumi, thanks for the website, will go have a look at it myself.

  376. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 12th, 2012 3:27 pm

    Day 4 done and dusted …… I’m having a green salad for dinner – the fruit salad is not doing it for me. Woke up last night soooo hungry and battled to go back to sleep because I went to bed hungry …. need a good night rest tonight. Had my breakfast @ 4 am LOL

  377. by angieNo Gravatar January 13th, 2012 7:35 am

    @Tanya – hi there. can you please check your book for me, I have always been a bit confused. Do I just finish up with Day 13 tomorrow, or should I continue with Day 14 and finish up the diet with the ” eat what you want” supper on Sunday. I know is called the 13 Day but seems weird to leave a day out. Thanks

  378. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 13th, 2012 8:24 am

    Hi Angie … The diet must be followed for 13 days only, no longer and no less. From the 14th day you can start eating normally again.

    Im so excited I’ve lost 4kg (day 5) and feeling great. I dont have time to go to the gym so Im just following the diet 100 %. …

    Angie thank you for always being on this blog and supporting everybody!!!

  379. by angieNo Gravatar January 13th, 2012 8:47 am

    @ Tanya – Well done on the 4kg. For now exercise its great!. And thanks for the thanks(lol) but believe me the blog gives me a hellava support too. Great to have a place to come to where everybody is going through the same thing. Guess since I have one and a half days left I need to go to the shops to buy some more ( and not on this list) veggies so that I can continue healthier from Sunday onwards. Don’t worry will be seeing me on the blog, need the support.

  380. by angieNo Gravatar January 13th, 2012 8:48 am

    P.S. carrots are going down very hard this morning!

  381. by JohannNo Gravatar January 13th, 2012 9:57 am

    im on day 9 now, feeling really good, looking forward to the end though, miss my “normal” veggies like brinjals, butternut, etc etc. Also getting fedup with steak. Carrots and lemon Angie, i know, yuck! Also not really a routine guy, i like to make my own choices when it comes to food choices etc. Sometimes the buddy craves fish more than steak you know, looking forward to replace my ham with pork chops tonight, also didnt want to deviate from the program but i really cant stomach ham. Good luck to you all, where do you live Angie?

  382. by angieNo Gravatar January 13th, 2012 11:23 am

    @Johann – Cape Town, and you?

  383. by TanyaNo Gravatar January 13th, 2012 4:00 pm

    Hi everybody .. Day 5 done and dusted. We are watching movies tonight wish I could have some popcorn LOL but NO I have to be strong.

  384. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 15th, 2012 6:07 am

    Hello ALL

    I’ve started this diet today, i have a lot to lose, so i can’t wait to see the results.
    Does anyone know if i can do this diet and do a 21 Day Full fast shortly after one another, my 21 day full fast starts on the 10th of February in Thailand.
    I’m from South Africa, I think it’s great having the support of others on the diet.

    My starting Weight is 88.9KG

    Chat soon :-)

  385. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 15th, 2012 6:29 am

    My height is 1.63, so it’s a lot to lose.

  386. by angieNo Gravatar January 16th, 2012 7:10 am

    So diet is done and dusted – well for another two months at least – lol. Went for a 3.8km walk on Saturday afternoon in the forest and was amazing. Today starts my new “normal eating” Having fruit for breakfast and ratatouile for lunch. Trying to keep away from the carbs. New year, new go at willpower. Welcome to all the newbies.

  387. by OwenNo Gravatar January 16th, 2012 8:20 am

    Good morning everyone, I have just read through all your blogs as I am starting on this diet today! I have been a bit confused as there are two diets, one with measurements when it comes to steak, ham etc – the one I received from a friend, as I see some of you have also received it, has no weigth measurements and also includes wholewheat bread. Which would be the most effective diet to follow? I do prefer working to measured weights otherwise I could go quite apeshit on the steak, ham etc. Any advise would be gratefully appreciated – as all encouragement is such a boost!

  388. by sweetieNo Gravatar January 16th, 2012 11:27 am

    hi guys, am gona start this diet soon,i dont drink coffee..can i hv green tea instead? and chicken breast instead of steak??plz help thnx

  389. by angieNo Gravatar January 16th, 2012 12:25 pm

    @Owen, not sure why there are two diets or which one is more correct. I followed the all u can eat one, going to do the other one next time.
    @ Tanya -Which one is in your book?

  390. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 16th, 2012 1:08 pm

    ohhh i started yesterday so far so good, but im not sure about the ham for dinner… will it really have a big impact if i have 2 sweetener pills instead of 1… that coffee is horrible with 1 canderel pill

  391. by misaNo Gravatar January 16th, 2012 1:48 pm

  397. by angieNo Gravatar January 17th, 2012 7:26 am

    So Day 2 after the Diet – LOL. I think we need a blog site for after the diet , to keep us on t he straight and narrow.
    @ Corlia – I did the same thing on my Day 2 – was tough to sit there and only drink water. Ordered myself the green salad and only ate the green stuff in there – peppers and lettuce. The things we do.

  398. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 17th, 2012 9:03 am

    @CorliaY – you are not alone, i am also on day 3.
    The ham went down very well last nite, i was so worried. I slept all night and i thought i was gonna wake up hungry but no…

    Day 3 so far so good. i dont have a scale so i will just see how the clothes fit as the days go by.

  399. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 17th, 2012 12:10 pm

    @Angie :-)
    @Vuyo – Now we can do this together, i weighed myself when i started at 88.9KG and will only weigh myself again when i’m done, cause i need a BIG WOW on the scale, everyday demotivates me, I’ve done a lot of dieting in my life . .. .
    BUT I can feel this one working it’s magic on me already
    Yay
    xx

  400. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 17th, 2012 12:19 pm

  410. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 19th, 2012 4:35 am

    Hey Hey

    Starting Day 5, must say first for me having raw carrot in the morning, with lemon juice . .
    I feel more energized during the day , looking forward to lunch
    Good luck Vuyo, how is your diet going?
    To the rest of you on the diet, stick with it . . it does make a difference.
    Me and my sister from Cape town both started and so far we’re both going strong, support helps.
    I’m also keeping a food diary , detailing my whole day from when i wake to when i go to sleep and that helps me a lot.

    Good Luck all
    :-)

  411. by angieNo Gravatar January 19th, 2012 7:50 am

    @Muks – I battled with constipation with this diet as well.
    @Debbie – sorry did not battle with the sleep though

  412. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 19th, 2012 8:09 am

    hi all,

    On to Day 5, still holding on but yesterday was tough… i had a big meeting so imagine i arranged all the nice food for lunch and had to eat carrots + cheese. Everyone was surprised at me. I cheated and had 1 meatball, but not drinking the juice was the worst for me. i had water of course.
    @Debbie i hope u r feeling / sleeping better. ohh the carrots for breakfast today – im speechless.

    gud luck all…

  413. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 19th, 2012 12:42 pm

    @Corlia Y – i hope your day has gone well.
    The carrot for breakfast really got me starving, lunchtime was like a lifetime away.
    “why am i doing this – today i need the mind games, to believe the kilos r dropping on that scale”

  414. by JohannNo Gravatar January 19th, 2012 1:27 pm

    Hi all i finished the diet successfully on Tuesday evening, pretty proud of myself for only cheating once (muffins on saturday evening). But started yesterday with the fit for life eating principles, so far so good really!
    @Angie – I also live in Cape Town, dont know why i asked really, you just seem very cool….

  415. by MukiNo Gravatar January 19th, 2012 7:48 pm

    Hello all,

    This diet is not good for you! What happens is you end up losing your muscle weight. This is bad because you need that muscle weight it is essential inorder to be lean. The worst part is you lose more muscle tissue as you get older. Hence it is important to treasure what you have to begin with and build upon it. You barely end up losing fat on this diet. The most import thing is to lose the FAT .

    This diet is intended for people who need surgery and have to lose weight( it doesnt matter what kind of weight) in a short amount of time.

    The only way to lose weight is to be dedicated, eat healthy ( oats( slow burning carbs that prevent you from getting hungry) salmon/any other kind of fish, lentils, beans, berries, avocado, nuts … ) AND WORKING OUT.

    There is no shortcut to looking and feeling your best.

  416. by MukiNo Gravatar January 19th, 2012 7:49 pm

    I AM OFFICIALLY OFF THIS DIET!

  417. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 20th, 2012 5:07 am

    @Vuyo, yesterday was the worst for me as well, i was in the mood for everything, but luckily i stuck to it, i just told myself that i’m almost halfway and i’ll be very angry with myself if i quit now, hope yours is doing great as well, where you from?

  418. by CharnNo Gravatar January 20th, 2012 8:19 am

    Good Morning,

    I’m on my 6th day today, so far I lost 4kg, I’m hoping to lose 6 more, so that I can weigh 55kg. Good luck everyone. It really works if you are strict.

  419. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 20th, 2012 8:54 am

    @CorliaY – i am based in Pretoria. I think that is the motivation now, we count the days left and we know it can be done.
    Well done Charn… im sure you will reach your goal.

    @Muki – not to offend you my dear but everyone doing this diet knows the pros & cons we are not dumb and we are aware of the things you mention. I believe that doing this for 2wks and eating healthy/exercise for the rest of the year wont do damage, people have done worse.

    Day 6 ………enjoying the chicken quite a nice change :)

    I got on scale show slightly up ? Anyone else have this ? I have not cheated at all

    Gl fellow dieters

  428. by SELNo Gravatar January 22nd, 2012 1:57 pm

    Looking at this diet, it is mentioned that one can eat spinach, skinless chicken and steak but it doesn’t state how to prepare these. When grilling steak and chicken, do you add a little oil? Can we use spices?

  429. by dani700No Gravatar January 22nd, 2012 10:34 pm

    I am on my 5th day and have lost 2 lbs. I was hoping to have lost more as I also have been doing cardiovascular exercises for 30 minutes. Here’s a dumb question, if I exercise will I lose more? I don’t eat ham so have substituted it with steak. I hope this is okay. I cannot say I feel like I have lost weight, but we shall see at the end of the 12th day.

  430. by dani700No Gravatar January 22nd, 2012 10:35 pm

    @debbie. If you are slightly up, make sure you drink plenty of water. This is the key to the diet.

  431. by angieNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 9:56 am

    @SEL – I used Spray and Cook to make all my meals, then you don’t need to use oil. In future instead of using oil to brown onions etc you can use apple juice, or plain water.

  432. by ZakiyahNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 11:37 am

    Can anyone tell me what I can substitute HAM for as I am muslim ?????????????

  433. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 1:33 pm

    Day 9 – going well but im depressed thinking about the ham tonight.
    it has been tough over the weekend i must say, so hot i had juice, honestly cheating was not an issue i was thirsty – simple & honest.
    I have not weighed since i started and just feel like i dont see the difference, someone told me there is change…but mhhh do i believe.

    4 more days to go… i need faith now to continue til Friday.

    Hope its going good 4 u all

  434. by angieNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 3:03 pm

    FYI, read this weekend that it takes more calories to eat a boiled egg, than the egg actually provides – hence all the damn boiled eggs on this diet.

  435. by CharnNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 3:19 pm

    Good Day Fellow Dieters,

    Today is my 9th day and I have lost 6kgs so far, i’m so proud of myself that i’ve come so far…can’t wait for the end result.

    Zakiyah: you can substitute the ham for polony. I used the Rainbow chicken polony

  436. by BeaNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 3:33 pm

    Am thinking of starting this fab diet…stupid question tho’…on day 7; what’s meant with “sensible dinner”?

  437. by Lola pNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 8:53 pm

    I have been doing this diet every January for 13 days, I originally lost 13kg and in 4yrs have not gained it back, the reason I still do it every jan is to get rid of the 2 or 3 kg I usually pick up during the year. Thanks to this diet I have been able to control my weight for the first time in my life!

  438. by ZakiyahNo Gravatar January 23rd, 2012 9:06 pm

    Thanks Charn! Today was my first day and I found it really hard as I love food so much it hurts . But I am hanging in there. Good Luck Guys

  439. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 24th, 2012 4:06 am

    @vuyo, i’m with you on that on the ham, never thought i’d say this, but ham has never tasted so blan, like it does on this diet . . . .. i added a bit of ketchup, which only made it worse . . . but hey, day 9 is done now,
    What did you have for your sensible dinner?

  440. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 24th, 2012 8:22 am

    @Corlia – i had veges and chicken for the Saturday dinner.
    Last night i could not handle that ham alone so i had it as a sandwich with 2 slices.

    Day 10 – i think im gonna quit…. the PMS is really not helping as well, i feel like a grumpy old ”cow”

    hehehe, @vuyo, you can’t quit now, we’re almost done, you gonna be so mad at yourself for quitting . . hang in there, i’m suffering with you . . .
    I’m having most my dishes as a soup, i add lots of water and herbs, at least it’s hot, tastes like something, i have not weighed again after the 7th day the morning, i might have picked up that ‘sensible dinner’ lol, but hey , if we finish this diet this time, future attempts will also be successful :-)

  444. by IlseNo Gravatar January 24th, 2012 12:09 pm

    Give ideas for the “sensible dinner” PLEASE..

  445. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 24th, 2012 2:35 pm

    @Corlia – i dont think i will continue, sorry dear im very discouraged by the fact that i still look the same, im scared to weigh and be dissappointed to see im 1 kilo down after 10 days, maybe its not for my body, i dont know. People see results just not me. I will still finish the eating plan though but make a few changes to it. Its more of healthy eating than dieting now.

    Will try it again though…maybe im doing something wrong now, will check and see…

  446. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 24th, 2012 2:45 pm

  451. by SuzyNo Gravatar January 25th, 2012 1:17 pm

    hello all,
    i am on day 3, so far so good. i started this diet because it worked with everybody i know and tried. my mum does it every 2-3 years and each time loses 8-9kgs. and what even better she doesnt stick that strictly to the plan.She doesnt like steak, so she eats chicken breast instead. It still works! For me the first day was very difficult, not use to eat so little, so i had a horrible headache the first night! i am ok since though! fingers crossed!
    i wish everybody good luck!!!:)

    @Ilse: no, dont drink any whisky!!!that is very important to drink as much water as you can!

  452. by JohannNo Gravatar January 25th, 2012 2:28 pm

    @Angie Fit for life is a very old diet which is working well for me so far, to summarise it actually works like this….you have fruit and nothing but fruit during the morning till 12, then you dont combine protein and carbs for lunch and supper, i try to stick to a formula where i have my carbs in the afternoon and protein at night. They say you must also try that 70% of each meal is veggies/salad which can be eaten with any meal or with carbs or protein. The idea is that the high water content of fresh fruit/veg/salad washes out the system. Is the walk club you joined the one in the kenridge area?

  453. by BeaNo Gravatar January 25th, 2012 3:14 pm

    @ Ilse…I’m also still waiting for some guidance but I saw somebody said that they had chicken and veggies so I suppose it’s up to us to be “sensible”…Today is my first day, I must say I’m not struggling with the hunger but the headache is a motha!!!!!

  454. by angieNo Gravatar January 26th, 2012 7:16 am

    @Ilse – the diet says nothing extra, so no on the Whiskey. From what I have learnt alcohol is basically a carb, so right fromt the start you are ruining the diet.
    @Johann – we walk Tokai Forest Park. Facebook site – Walk it.

  455. by DebbieNo Gravatar January 26th, 2012 9:20 am

    huh huh well CorliaY…

    Happy for you.
    As for me, i stopped at Day 10 and i weighed yesterday and officially 1,2kg lost. i just could tell i was not seeing the difference. Im not angry at myself at all coz i followed the diet, just my body didn’t like it. i remain at 65kg….

  458. by DebbieNo Gravatar January 26th, 2012 1:46 pm

    Well done Corlia how did u do it ?

    I have been very strict no cheating yet seems only a 3,3 loss on day 10 drank over.2 l water a day ….

    Vuyo sorry u stopped know it can be very discouraging

    I due for my monthly wonder if that can affect weight ?

    Craving everything but I’m determined

  459. by vuyoNo Gravatar January 26th, 2012 1:54 pm

    that’s great Debbie, keep going you are almost there, maybe you will still lose more in the few days left…

  460. by CharnNo Gravatar January 27th, 2012 8:09 am

    Hi Guys,

    i’m on my last day. I just weighed myself and I lost 5kg. I initially lost 6kg, 5 days ago, but that’s when i got my monthy…in my opinion it does affect your weight loss, coz when you are sick your body retains water, so once my monthy is done, i will weigh again. I’m a bit disappointed, but I still have faith.

    P.S: Remember you should still lose weight 13 days after the diet. Hope it works!

  461. by CorliaYNo Gravatar January 27th, 2012 10:46 am

    @Debbie, I drank water like crazy, never cheated . . but ultimately , i had and still have a lot to loose, the more you have to loose , the quicker it works for you, the less, you’ve got to loose, the slower you shed the kilo’s.
    Good luck ALL
    @vuyo, thanks vuyo

  462. by DebbieNo Gravatar January 27th, 2012 11:52 am

    Thanx Corlia ..have 26,7 kg still to lose eish …but hey its a start let’s hope more is shed !

    Also believe mnthly and being sick affects ur weight

    Hi there,
    I’m on day 3 – have lost 1kg. Hoped for more, but I have thyroid problems, so any weight at this stage is good. The hunger thing seems better today, and the water helps. I think I’m on a different version than most of you…I don’t have a ‘free meal’ on day 7, only lamb and apple. Hope it works anyway. Wanted to ask, do you think its only water loss? Can 4 or 5kg loss, be water only?

    Good luck Angela, your 1st day will be my 4th :-)

  470. by antNo Gravatar January 31st, 2012 10:07 am

    well I’m on day 3 of the diet, starting weight 108kg. Will way myself tomorrow morning. I’m hoping to get down to 99kg will be so happy to be in the double digits. My baby is 5 months old and keeps me so busy, so don’t have time to think about hunger. Funny to read about a lot of the woman starting their menstruals, I haven’t had it since I became preggies as I am breastfeeding then on day 2 all os a sudden there was my aunty flo.

  471. by cNo Gravatar January 31st, 2012 10:56 am

    Good luck ant, we are on the same day, so let’s get to the last one together!! I started at 68.3, day 3 I’m at 67.3, but gonna try not to weigh again until day 7, but I need the encouragement of seeing the loss!

  472. by BeaNo Gravatar January 31st, 2012 4:15 pm

    I think I have started at a bad time of the month…”that time”…on day 7 now and only down by 1.3kg’s :-( …and I have stuck to this to the T!!!! I have definately lost a lot of cm’s but will weigh again on day 13…The hunger didn’t bother me at all but the headaches I couldn’t handle…

  473. by antNo Gravatar February 1st, 2012 7:19 am

    woohooo got on the scale I now weigh 105kg lost 3kg starting day 4 today had to eat yoghurt yesterday as i was feeling faint and dizzy. Today it’s carrots and cheese for lunch so i will make carrot salad with a bit of lemon juice on it and eat cheese seperate.

  474. by cNo Gravatar February 1st, 2012 7:22 am

  479. by AlidaNo Gravatar February 2nd, 2012 7:44 am

    Hi there,

    I have high blood pressure and I want to know if I can still take my High Blood Pressure Medicine while on this diet, since it says that you can only eat or drink and follow the menu as is else it won’t work. I’d like to be very dedicated about this diet to get the atmost result out of it.

  480. by antNo Gravatar February 2nd, 2012 9:13 am

    starting muya thai classes today so i didn’t have the carrots and lemon for breakfast i had two slices of whole wheat bread as i’m just scared i faint while doing the training. Can’t wait to climb on the scale again as i think i might have lost some more unwanted kilos. I’m aiming for double digits, starting weight was 108 yesterday when I weighed myself I was on 105 so I only have 6 more kilo’s to go.

  481. by RendaniNo Gravatar February 2nd, 2012 9:15 am

    I am on day one, just had my coffee, and to be honest am super hungry now_ i did not eat much yesterday and i think thats y am so hungry, but am going to keep strong. i really hope to get to my desired weight, i weigh 68kgs now and i would like to go back to my before baby weight of 55kgs. From what am reading here it seems ppl are loosing between 4-8 kgs_ which is a lot, so hopefully it will work for me too.

  482. by cNo Gravatar February 2nd, 2012 12:41 pm

    Rendani – the hunger thing passes – by day 3 you should not feel hungry anymore. My weight is the same as yours – GOOD LUCK, you’ll be fine!

    I’m on day 5 …no more weight loss this far, so I might stop tomorrow, maybe it’s just not working for me – maybe it’s my thyroid again…. I don’t know – no cheating, and I’ve done everything exactly as I should? Aw well……next!

  483. by ttNo Gravatar February 2nd, 2012 2:28 pm

  484. by MarlizeNo Gravatar February 2nd, 2012 2:44 pm

    C – Don’t stop now, I was also feeling like you, in my first 3 days lost 3.3kg, then stood still, but I still went on, today I am on day 11 and am on 4.7kg lighter, still have a long way to go, but I stood still for 3 years, no matter what I try, with the 13 betabolism diet I started loosing,

    Delilah – Thank you for a wonderfull website, do you perhaps have more information about the long term effect of the 13 day metabolism diet?

  485. by angieNo Gravatar February 2nd, 2012 3:22 pm

    @ C – don’t stop. Nearly all of the weightloss is in the first five days, but I have done this diet three times and the second time around I did it for a week – picked up the weight I lost and a little over the next month. Hence had to go back on it again this year. If nor more weightloss, at least look at it as another week that you are eating better and more healthier – good lead up to when you are off the diet.

  486. by ThobileNo Gravatar February 3rd, 2012 8:55 am

    im on day 5 having my carrot with lemon nice combo i must say weigh myself on day 3 lost 1.5 kg hopefully the weight loss pics ups coz after work i got to gym atleast 4-5 times a week i really miss my old body crossing fingers that soon ill be wearing my old clothes

    I started this diet on Saturday on the same day I got my period. it didnt go bad at all. after seeing this diet i thought i was on the wrong track. i will continue though as i would really like to kickstart my motabolism. i’ve been following weigh-less and lost 10kgs to far but have reached a plato. so hopefully this one will work for me. already recorded a 2kg weigh-loss

I just wish I had time to go to the Gym! So busy but need to do something. Still feeling strong so I’ll persevere. Is it normal to feel thirsty all the time? My period seems to be continuing so I wonder if this is normal too?

  497. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 10th, 2012 11:18 pm

    I haven’t seen any answers on taking vitamin tablets whilst on this diet? I really would love to start by Sunday & will give a day to day update. I find it so comforting being in a motivated space.

  498. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 11th, 2012 9:36 am

    So I woke up thinking that I’ll do what I think is right & seeing that I’m aiming 4 7 days I’ll do vitamins with meals as I usually do. So coffee black no sugar as I usually do was easy enuf. So I figure seeing that I had it at 9, then lunch shud b in abt 4 1/2 to 5 hours as I do my normal eating plan …. 62.6kgs starting weight. I aim to weigh on completion which is friday night b4 my sensible meal lol … I was 69kgs in July and started a healthy eating plan. By October I landed on 61. Then became relaxed. Festive hit which was okay. I’ve maintained but I guess me having wine the last few weekends has put me up 1.6 which I think is my own fault. I’ve built a bridge. I’m hoping this diet will get me back on track as the top of my BMi is 57 which is what I’m aiming for. Whatever the results of this week I will decide the way forward. Till 2moro!!!!!!

  499. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 11th, 2012 11:17 am

    This is the plan i know:
    day 1.

    Day 6 and all is well, and have more energy. Looking forward to weigh myself in 8 days time, starting weight was 80kg I’m aiming for 70kg by the end of two weeks.

  501. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 12th, 2012 1:09 pm

    Day 1 went well in the face of my not busy weekend turning hectic & having guests. Day 2, lunch, steak & salad here I come….not sure how I’m feeling. At least the week with its routine will not attract much attention.

  502. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 13th, 2012 8:47 am

    Day 3, I’ve been reading abt this like I’m studying for examines. So many variations, it’s a bit disconcerting however when I look at them closely, they vary by a small scale. Anyways, I’m planning on having a desktop lunch cos the comments from the crew I sit with will b wicked. Well as I initially shared I will do it 4 7days so tomorrow marks halfway. I generally eat small portions so the eat as much as u like thing is tricky. I look 4ward to ham & salad tonite. Lol …

  503. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 14th, 2012 6:36 am

    So where is every1. Feeling a little like an island but I shall persevere. Day 4. Once I get passed just boiled carrots 4 lunch, there is victory on the horizon …

  504. by TriciaNo Gravatar February 14th, 2012 11:08 am

    Hi Everyone,

    Today is day 3 (Valentines Day). My husband offered to take me out, I was tempted but I really want to test if this diet will work for me. I’m not going to give up, I had coffee with milk on day 2 but I refused to give up

  505. by angieNo Gravatar February 14th, 2012 1:05 pm

    Waiting very patiently for my two months to be up so I can go on this diet again.
    @Blue Topaz – enjoy the carrots for lunch. The carrots for breakfast suxs – just a warning. all the best for halfway.

  506. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 14th, 2012 4:50 pm

    Thank u Angie (“,). I’ve bn telling myself 2 b strong … You are 1 of the people I looked 4ward 2 meeting. I’ve seen by previous comments that u do a lot of encouraging, nice stuff sweets. Which version of the diet do u do?

  507. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 15th, 2012 6:57 am

    Day 5, Well I’m officially passed all the weird meals. Yesterday was the hardest. I enjoy carrots but it felt like an overdose. So when I was grilling my fish for today I grilled the carrot for breakfast so it wasn’t too back. I’ve made it far, esp cos no one at home knows. Im usually on a eating plan which they all know so wanting this little boost I know 4 sure hubby wud have not been happy. He wouldn’t thro his toys out the cot but the face wud have told me volumes. So they happy at the prospect of steak 2nyt. Whoop whoop. I’m feeling a bit lighter. 2 more days then I weigh & complete then continue on my balanced plan. The same plan that made me loose the initial weight but over 3 – 4 months.

  508. by angieNo Gravatar February 15th, 2012 7:21 am

    @ Topaz. I have been doing the unrestricted one, but want to do the weighing one next to see if it makes a difference. What balanced plan have you been on? Always interested to see what works for other people.

  509. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 15th, 2012 8:59 am

    I went to sure slim, a bit pricy but no doubt rewarding. The plan is based on ur blood results. So they weigh u, take ur measurements and teach u “how to eat” … They encourage a fair portion of veg and meats … Ur food is weighed which prevents over eating so u literally eat ur self thin. The food is basic everyday food. They suggest spices, curry powders & such so u always eating palatable food, in good portions … So I know after Friday when I resume my lifestyle plan I’m well guided. There is a weight loss plan, the a holiday plan and a lifestyle plan where u can eat anything but within fair limits.

  510. by NtombiNo Gravatar February 15th, 2012 11:00 am

    Thanks for the motivation starting on day 1 today, headache is killing me

  511. by angieNo Gravatar February 15th, 2012 11:37 am

    @ Ntombi – Headaches go away after third day.

  512. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 15th, 2012 7:14 pm

    Day 5 has come to a close. 2 more days then I c wit I’ve lost. Interesting times? I think if I ever have to do this diet again I’ll do all 14 days. It’s been an interesting space with food this week … @Angie, I’m convinced u in change management, way to go girlfriend @ Ntombi, it gets better hun, a whole lot better. It’s mind ova matter.

  513. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 16th, 2012 6:01 am

    Day 6, toast & coffee shortly. Tryna think how I’m gonna do chicken only. Lol… As 4 dinner, it hilarious. Almost there so I’ll continue being good. Have a lovely day folks.

  514. by TriciaNo Gravatar February 16th, 2012 7:32 am

    Wow, today is day 5. I started by weighing myself first thing this morning. I lost 3.5kg (thats a big deal to me). Soooo excited, will weigh my self again after 5 days and post the results

  515. by mizetNo Gravatar February 16th, 2012 9:43 am

    hey ladies ! im also on day 4 and i have lost 3kg so far..its really wroking i can actually feel my stomach shrinking :) i just need to stay focused cos the weekend is around teh corner..*sigh*

  516. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 16th, 2012 9:51 am

    Ladies, that sounds great. I’ve decided that I’ll weigh 2moro morning and not evening so u’ve given me a boost.

  517. by angieNo Gravatar February 16th, 2012 11:57 am

    Well done everyone.
    @ Blue – I am actually in the Accounting field – hahahaha. Just love giving support as I know it feels great to get some.

  518. by Blue topazNo Gravatar February 17th, 2012 7:32 am

    Day 7 is a breeze. Just look @ lunch & dinner so I consider my 7 days ova. A bit disappointing tho. I stuck to this diet so strictly & I’ve in total lost 1kg but that’s ok. Not everything is 4 every1 so I’ll return to my way of eating which I loose a kg a week 4 anyways. So on 61.6, it’s 4.6 to go which shud b achieved in the next 4 weeks so I’m not stressing. It was fun while it lasted. If I pull this stunt again I’m gonna do the one that was developed by the japs. Just look @ how tiny they are . Lol …. Ladies, don’t dismay, keep at it. @Angie the world needs more supporters like u doll. I’ll pop in from time to time to see how u ladies r doing. Keep it tight, keep it real! Mwah!

  519. by angieNo Gravatar February 17th, 2012 8:49 am

  523. by MadreNo Gravatar February 19th, 2012 3:27 pm

    Hey gals and guys

    I am on day 8 and have lost almost 6kg`s already, i believe that you must not cheat once with this diet not even a splash of milk or sugar, i had my eggs and spinach for lunch the only meal i did not like eeeeeeuuuuuuu, but i drink lots of water with pieces of lemon that helps alot, COME ON PPL i know you can do it!!!! I fit into clothes that did not fit me a year ago and that is the best motivation ever.
    For my cheat meal i had a Nando`s wrap and lots of water so i feel good about that lol, only thing i am craving is a pizza he he
    Good luck to everyone doing this diet it really takes gutts

    Chat to you all soon my fellow Diet friends

  524. by GAYNORNo Gravatar February 20th, 2012 8:29 am

    Hi Madre

    Thanks for the motivation. This is day 2 for me and so far so good. I felt a little dizzy with my first day but feel much better today. I just have to do this so ya lets wait and see at the end of day 13.

    Have a splendid day.

  525. by RehemaNo Gravatar February 23rd, 2012 12:39 pm

    Did this in Nov 2008 after my second baby and lost 7kgs to 75kgs but xmas came n slowly the weight creeped back. Starting again tomorrow, now at 84kgs so hoping that its going to jump start the loss then back to the gym.

  526. by ANGIENo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 8:18 am

    Planning on doing the restricted version of this diet.Been converting the ounces to grams – mouth is hanging on the floor – the ounces sound like such a much bigger portion. No wonder ppl are loosing 8 – 11 kg on that one – not eating at all. But will carry on. Will try it for 7 days and then see how I am feeling and if I can carry on or if I need to do the unrestricted one for the following week. Just dont’ know what to do about the cup of tomatoes – I normally have a baby cherry one with the unrestricted one as I hate tomatoes. Wonder if a cup of tomato sauce will suffice – lol

  527. by Blue TopazNo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 9:14 am

    Hey Ang, pls post the diet you gonna do. So many versions :-( maybe I could give that one a try sometime …

  528. by GAYNORNo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 11:10 am

    Hey Blue Topaz

    The one you have on here is the one that I’m trying. This is my 6th day and lost 3kg already. I need to lose more so I will stick to this one.
    @Angie see the eating plan from Blue Topaz, no ounces on there that is how followed it.

    Regards
    Gaynie

  529. by RehemaNo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 12:50 pm

    having the spinach, eggs n tomato for supper n not lunch, read that its cool to do that. Cant imagine doing the eggs in the office will get everyone onto the fact that am doing the diet and dont want any negativity. Just loving reading everyones comments gives me the strength to go on. Day 1 nearly conquered.

  530. by RashikaNo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 1:38 pm

    Hi

    I am on day 5 of the diet and only lost 1kg , I am concerned.

  531. by GAYNORNo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 2:38 pm

    Rashika,

    I hope it will get better, don’t give up we are all trying to do this. It is tough for me because I love food and I am a social drinker. So I just have to do this for myself. Maybe you don’t have to loose a lot and that is why it is going so slow.
    Strongz girl.

    Regards
    Gaynor

  532. by StacyNo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 2:55 pm

    hi, I am doing this diet with Rashika and I am also on day 5, I feel exhausted but i have only also lost 1kg which is very disappointing…any advice?

  533. by RashikaNo Gravatar February 24th, 2012 2:56 pm

    Hi Gaynor

    Thanks for your response.

    this diet is very difficult , i also love my food.

    How far are you on this diet and have you lost any yet ?

    I need to lose 10kg and was hoping this was gona give me a boost.

    Still have 8 days to go and will keep strong

    Hi ladies, I also was on the diet, but 4 7 days and I too only lost 1kg hence I was interested in the version that Ang said she’d use. There r so many versions, it’s actually just insane. I saw one with eat as much as u like bread & all my alarms went off. I just see bread & it sticks 2 me buttocks

  537. by ANGIENo Gravatar February 27th, 2012 12:34 pm

    Hi Blue Topaz. I have done the unrestricted one where you eat bread in the morning and each time have lost 5kg, thats why I want to do the restricted one to see if I can loose more as have a crap load more to loose.With the unrestricted one I loose everything in the first five days, just do the other days to help keep it off. Starting on Sunday once all my plans are done and going to use the diet the blog starts off with.
    Will be interesting to compare them.

  538. by RehemaNo Gravatar February 27th, 2012 1:40 pm

    hi just read this diet and sounds good ..really want to shed this weight but one problem ihave with finding a diet to suit me is that they all include EGGS!! i cannot eat eegs ..trust me i have tried… can someone please HELP ME on what i can eat instead of the eggs PLEASE PLEASE LET ME KNOW THANKYOU !!!! :-( !

  540. by Blue TopazNo Gravatar February 27th, 2012 9:32 pm

    Mmmm ladies, these sound interesting I was wondering what Ntombi was talking abt when she said celery yuk …. As for eggs, now that’s a pity. I personally don’t have any idea however in my own crazy world, Id google to find out the nutritional value of eggs & find sum thing that matches up. Don’t quote me, I’d do something like that lol

  541. by RehemaNo Gravatar February 28th, 2012 7:14 am

    cant figure the eggs thing, n u arent the first person with that problem, as blue says just google. The diet that allows limitless bread is a definete no no, so muh carbs so will really limit the weight loss, if going for the most weight loss avoid this.

  542. by ANGIENo Gravatar February 28th, 2012 10:00 am

    @ Rehema – I am insulin resitant and supposed to stay away from carbs. Alhough it says unlimited bread, lets face it anything over two slices is just greedy. I ate two slices of bread on those days and still lost weight. The unlimited part is just for your mind – so you know you can eat more,but logic says don’t.

  543. by GAYNORNo Gravatar February 28th, 2012 11:10 am

    Hi Rashika

    This is day 10 for me and lost 4.6kg’s in the process. Please be strong and keep eating what you need to eat.
    @Angie I also have bread on the bread days…..one with a cup of coffee at 7:00 and then one with a cup of coffee at 10:00 and whole wheat it must be.

  544. by RehemaNo Gravatar February 28th, 2012 1:04 pm

    Congars Rashika, am on day 5 and dare not weigh myself but clothes fitting much better. really encouraged by your post.

  546. by StellahNo Gravatar February 28th, 2012 2:08 pm

    Hi, All,

    I have been reading all the comments and i must say that am inspired to go on with my diet.
    Am on day two but mine is abit different from all the above. Some of my friends have tried it and they lost 15 -17kgs, i will give you feedback on the 14th day because i promised my self that i will not weigh until the 14th day

    THE HOSPITAL’S METABOLISTIC DIET – THIRTEEN DAYS PLAN

    Day 1 Morning: One cup of black coffee and one lamp of sugar
    Lunch: Two hard-boiled eggs, spinach boiled in water, and one tomato.
    Dinner: One LARGE STEAK, green salad with lemon and oil dressing.

    Day 2 Morning: One cup of black coffee and one lamp of sugar
    Lunch: One slice of ham 200 ml of plain yogurt.
    Dinner: One LARGE STEAK, green salad with lemon and oil dressing, one fruit

    Day 3 Morning: One cup of black coffee, one lamp of sugar, and one piece of dry toast.
    Lunch: Two hard-boiled eggs, one piece of ham, and green salad with lemon & oil dressing.
    Dinner: Boiled Celery, one tomato, one fruit.

    Day 4 Morning: One cup of black coffee, one lamp of sugar, one piece of dry toast.
    Lunch: One can of fruit juice, 200 ml plain yoghurt.
    Dinner: One hard boiled egg, one raw shredded carrot, 200 ml cottage cheese.

    Day 5 Morning: One big raw shredded carrot, with lemon juice
    Lunch: One large piece of boiled red snapper (fish) with lemon and a little butter
    Dinner: One LARGE STEAK, green salad with celery.

    Day 6 Morning: One cup of black coffee and one lamp of sugar, one piece of dry toast.
    Lunch: Two hard-boiled eggs and one raw shredded carrot.
    Dinner: One piece of chicken breast, green salad with lemon and oil dressing.

    Day 7 Morning: One cup of black tea (no sugar)
    Lunch: NOTHING!!!!
    Dinner: One grilled lamb chop and fresh fruit.

    Days 8 – 13 REPEAT Day 1 to Day 6, WHICH MAKES THIRTEEN DAYS

    IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Remember to drink at least 2 liters of water everyday.
    You are not allowed to substitute the coffee with tea and sugar has to be used as prescribed.
    The diet should be followed for 13 days no more no less

    About the metabolistic diet.
    The diet lasts 13 days and therefore is hard but efficient.
    The diet’s main objective is to alter your metabolism so that after day 13 you will be able to eat normally WITHOUT GAINING WEIGHT AGAIN.
    This is not a traditional diet where you starve your body, but a diet which increases your metabolism and the effect will last for at least a year on. If you follow this diet TO THE LETTER you will lose all your excess body weight up to 30 pounds. The diet must be followed for 13 days no more no less. But as already mentioned, the diet must be followed to the letter.
    If you drink a glass of wine or candy or chew gum during the diet or get tempted to eat extra food etc., BREAK THE DIET IMMEDIATELY, as the diet will have lost effect. If you get through all the thirteen days, the diet may be repeated after one year. If you have only managed up to six days, you may try again after 3 months. If you get hungry during the diet, drink plain water.
    WISH YOU ALL THE BEST

    As anyone ever used this one so that she can share with me!!!!!!

  547. by TshepisoNo Gravatar February 28th, 2012 2:52 pm

    Hie People.

    I am on day 2,and so far so good. My husband did the diet a couple of years ago and lost a hell lot of weight. I started with him but didnt make it past lunch coz of my low blood pressure, it dropped way too low from eating nothing in the morning. But as I said I am on day 2 today, this time I took 5 days off from work so that I dont use too much energy and I can sleep whenever I am feeling perkish. I’ll go back to work on my 8th day but I will be used to the diet so it wont be bad. I am feeling great and have lost 1 kg. I want to loose 5kg.

    Goodluck to those who want to start.

  548. by lindyNo Gravatar February 29th, 2012 10:10 am

    Tshepiso that great I am also on the 3rd of the diet with my collegue and its a bit challenging but we are loving it we cant wait for the next day, so far ive lost 1.4 kilos and my collegue she waiting for day 7 to weigh herself. i hope to lose atleast 6 kilos. but we are loving it we have so much energy. Tshepiso keep us posted on ure progress as well.

  549. by NosoNo Gravatar February 29th, 2012 10:36 am

    Hi Tshepiso and Lindy

    I’m also on day 3 and so far so good, last night i went to bed stlill hungry, but this morning i’m not so hungry. i’m actually enjoying this diet, looking forward to lunch :)
    oh, i only had 1 slice of bread this morning with my yucky black coffee :(

    this coming weekend is gonna be a challenge though, BF asked me not to make any plans, he wants us to spend some time 2gether. but i know i’ll make it through

    keep me posted also guys, lets do this together.

  550. by TshepisoNo Gravatar February 29th, 2012 10:38 am

    Hie Lindy

    Its day 3 and I am feeling great, atleast today I got to eat toast. Was excited when I woke up looking forward to eating the toast after 2 mornings of nothing but coffee. I will weigh myself on day 5.

    I feel energetic and very light. I feel renew. I guess my body is loving the diet.

  551. by TshepisoNo Gravatar February 29th, 2012 12:34 pm

    I just had my lunch. The eggs and ham not bad problem was lemon in lettuce, yuck. I wanted to make salad but the taste of lemon and the salty stuff wasnt that great. I hate eggs but I just have to sto HATING just for this couple of days. I am also lactose intolerant but that aint nothing compared to be overweight. I want my size 34/36 clothes to fit me perfectly so I will surfer just for this 13 days. Its not like its a lifetime thing. Hahaha hahaa haaaa.

    Let the struggle continue………………………!

    So all the meat bought, weighed and put into Defreeze ready to start on Sunday. Its weird looking at a weight on a page and looking at it in real life. Just to buy my veggies on Saturday. Well wishes for everyone on the diet and will check in on Monday ( Day 2) to let everyone know how its going.

  558. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 1st, 2012 5:12 pm

    Hie guys

    Can somebody suggest good meal times. E.g what time should I have my breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sometimes I think I eat too early.

    Can someone also advice if its wrong to spread your meals e.g have the youghurt at 1p.m then the fruit juice at 2p.m

  559. by Blue TopazNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 7:57 am

    @Angie, u r a woman on a mission, u tempt me to wanna do this again but I’ll restrain myself.
    @Tshepiso, I had the same question abt eating times so I just decided on 4 1/2 to 5 hrs depending on my hunger as I use to feel very bloated & full by dinner so I tried to eat by 6 already so that by the time I slept I was at a reasonable comfort level.
    Am proud of all of you. It’s amazing how our confident levels shoot up after loosing even just 1kg. Happy shedding!

  560. by Blue TopazNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 8:01 am

    A tip for after the diet that I’m finding interesting, I’ve started cooking with coconut oil. Whatever I put in the oven I use the non stick spray so now I’ve moved over to abt 2 spoons of coconut oil, after steaming / microwaving veggies I braise it in abt a spoon of coconut oil. It enhances flavor & has contributed to weight loss without trying too hard.

  561. by GAYNORNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 9:54 am

    Hi Tshepiso

    My time is as follows:

    I do have two slices of bread for the day even though some of it ask for 1 slice…

    7:00 coffee with wholewheat bread (only bread days)
    10:00 coffee with wholewheat bread (only bread days)
    13:00 Lunch
    17:00 Dinner
    Beverages inbetween like black coffee and water…

  562. by NosoNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 10:07 am

    Day 5 and still going strong #nomorehunger#
    lol, I still havent weighed myself yet but i can already see the difference, my clothes are fitting much better already and i’m feeling great :)
    i’ve always been the person who does not worry about how much i weigh, but how big i look.
    so i’m cool with weighing myself after 13 days.

  563. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 11:47 am

    Noso, thats fab, am on day 8 and in trousers that i last wore a year ago. I love today coz am allowed to eat so much but cant manage all of it. im just loving this.

  564. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 11:58 am

    Hie

    Thanks guys for replying me.

    I weighed myself this morning of day 5. My weight hasnt changed but my clothes fit, my stomach is flatter and my waist is smaller. I also noticed that I got my periods today which is a ssurprise for me coz since I started using the norplant contraceptive a couple of months ago I havent had any periods. Well I am not worried whether they are here or not, I am continuing to the end. I guess its part of detoxification as well.

    pSSSSSSS GALS……. I look nicer in panties with a flatter stomach and smaller waist. My husband couldnt stop licking his lips in the morning. Unfortunately I am on my periods.

  565. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 12:00 pm

    naughty Tshepiso, heheheheheheh! keep it up gal!

  566. by Blue TopazNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 12:42 pm

    That’s the spirit, u go girl!

  567. by NosoNo Gravatar March 2nd, 2012 3:12 pm

    Well done tshepiso
    till monday Ladies
    Have yourselfed a super – fat free sugarfree carbs free health eating weekend lol

  568. by YanieNo Gravatar March 3rd, 2012 7:21 pm

    Hi everyone,I have started yesterday, day one was hard but enjoyed two. Currently weigh 72kg and would like to loose 10kg…x

  569. by AngieNo Gravatar March 4th, 2012 7:49 am

    @Tshepiso, – I menstrate everytimr I do this diet – without fail- even though on injection. Day one for me today. Realising now that might not have been a good idea to start diet aftera night out dancing. Came home at one. Very tired now but all good.

  570. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 4th, 2012 11:51 am

    Hie

    I am on day 7, my weight still the same. Started with 74 and lost a kg the 1st two days and that was it. I think its because of water retention due to menses. The good thing is that I am lighter and feeling healthier otherwise I was going to be discouraged. I just wanted to loose atleast 5kg just for my BMI to be right.

    This is the hardest day I tell you, the other days are much better once you get used to the diet. My family tried to tempt me by eating my favorite meals around me, but they failed and I still failing to tempt me.

  571. by ZeezuNo Gravatar March 4th, 2012 1:53 pm

    Hi, can anyone confirm if this diet is the same as the 13 day diet mentioned above as I read that some of you have the coffee and bread twice a day?

  572. by AngieNo Gravatar March 4th, 2012 2:55 pm

    @Zeezu- on the unlimited version u have coffee and unlimited w\w bread for breakfast. One lady here chose to split hers up between 8 and 10 in the morning. There are at least Two different versions – restricted weight and unlimited weights for this diet

  573. by YanieNo Gravatar March 4th, 2012 5:47 pm

    Hi Zeezu, I am doing the one that has unlimited w/w bread and coffee some mornings and I am day 3, like Angie say there seem to be slight difference between them but I heard the work the same. Cant wait to weigh my self on day 5….x

  574. by AngieNo Gravatar March 4th, 2012 6:21 pm

    Day one practically in the bag. As I ate my supper, I remembered just how much I don’t like celery. And I have it for lunch tomorrow as well.Drank 4 litres of water today and two black coffees. Never been so thirsty before and can’t blame it on the heat as raining today.

  575. by GeorgieNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 1:53 am

    Anyone found a substitue for eggs in this diet? My wife can’t eat egg? Anyone?

  576. by LindyNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 6:57 am

    Yanie Im doing the same one as you, and Im on day 8, Im telling you my pants are already loose hopefully by the end of the week i will loose 8 kilos in total good luck, Tshepiso how far are you now are u still holding on? Georgie from what are hear about this diet no product must be substituted for it to fully work and give that magnetic field to prevent one from gaining weight within a period of three years, maybe you must try dieticians maybe they could help, big ups to everyone who are on this diet becoz its definately not easy, but we can do it.

  577. by YanieNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 11:03 am

    Hey Lindy, day 8 well done you… I have been using turkey ham instead of pork, however it doesnt say pork ham, just ham..do u think i have messed up? Also are you feeling any tired want to go to the gym in the afternoon but I am scared I might burn more calories, loose energy and get sick… I have actually found the last 3 days alright didnt get much hungry only cravings and hope it stays this way… Good luck everybody your positive comment are really motivating..xx

  578. by LindyNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 11:18 am

    Yanie
    I dont think it really matters what ham it is, coz it really doesnt say, as long as its ham, ure still on the right track, Day 3 was the worst for me, but after that it was just normal, but i ay constantly get headaches especially on day 7, but i just drank a lot of water, I also want to start gym today but im afraid what if i get too tired and too hungry? I will just walk and jog around my neighbourhood this evening first and see how am i going to feel. Have a great day strong

  579. by StellahNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 11:23 am

    Hi all, am on day 8 and i was tempted to weigh again and am overwhelmed with the results, on the forth day, i had lost 3kgs, yesterday during lunch time, i weighed and i had lost more1kg but amazingly when i weighed this morning, i had lost more 6kgs, i cannot believe it.

    I just feel like going on with the diet for a month to achieve my size.

  580. by StellahNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 11:25 am

    I forgot to tell you that i have lost 10kgs in 8days

  581. by LindyNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 1:15 pm

    OMG Stella thats awesome!!! Im jealous thats wonderfull, what was your starting weight?

  582. by AngieNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 1:27 pm

    Day 2 on restricted diet going very slowly. Battling to get my celery and lettuce salad down. Been at my desk for almost two hours now. Want to finish it cause afraid I might be starving tonight after the ham. Luckily – knock on wood- no headaches so far. Forgot my water biscuit at home this morning but really how much difference can one biscuit make? Three litres down so far. Still so thirsty.

  583. by VhuyeNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 2:39 pm

    ‘m really inspired by all your stories.i had my second baby last year in march and ever since then ‘v e been gaining weight.i’v been looking for a safe and effective way to do it and i think this blog is the one.
    @ stella congratulations.i do have a question though.will the hospital diet help keep the weight off for at least a year just like the metabolism diet.

  584. by NosoNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 2:42 pm

    Day 8 and feeling constipated. still have not weighed myself but i like what i see when i’m looking at the mirror :)

  585. by YanieNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 3:22 pm

    Wooow Stella welldone, thanks Lindy…:).. my lunch today was cooked or raw carrots and cheese as much as you like…cooked my carrotts and put them in an oven tray added loads of cheese and put in the oven to melt not too bad at all…very tempted to weigh my self on the WII..LOOL

  586. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 4:25 pm

    Hie Lindy

    I am feeling greeeeeeeeeat. Went to work today after a week off and guess what…..everybody was telling me I look hot. I wore my tight skirt that I havent worn in ages and a tight top, my, my, my, compliments were flying all over. I am on day 8 now. I look like like an 18 year old.

    I am finishing this diet come what may! I didnt spinach today though hope it doesnt mess up.

  587. by AngieNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 6:24 pm

    Feeling very down tonight. Couldn’t start me car on way home from clinet. Twi hours later discovered that a fuse blew- we think my radio that I paid R1000 for lasy week caused a short circuit. Got home had my little bit of ham and cooked my lunch and supper for tomorrow. Thought to weigh myself( to cheer myself up) and typically my scale is on the blink- just flashing numbers at me. Hopefully tomorrow goes better. Going to hard day though as green beans and tomatoes are not really on my favourites list. Made a soup from the tomatoes and green beans with herbs and worcestershire sauce. For supper adding my chopped up ham.

  588. by SafiyyaNo Gravatar March 5th, 2012 8:38 pm

    I went on this diest last year and it worked like a charm. I went back to eating normally after and I haven’t gained since this diet. As a Muslim I had to make a slight change to the diet. I substituted ham for smoked chicken. I also skipped the coffees in the morning as I’m not a fan of coffee. I grlled my steak and chicken with spices and it wasnt so bad. There was a day when I felt a little faint but after drinking cold water I felt much better. During all the other days of the diet I had alot of energy which was incredible. I did the diet for 14 days not 13. Good luck to those who are trying. If you cheat they dont recommend trying the diet for another 6 months. That was a motivation for me to NOT cheat.

  589. by Blue TopazNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 8:15 am

    Ladies, u r all incredible. @ Angie, chin up chick, u r the strong one. I hope today is a better 1 4 u. Awesomeness!

  590. by LindyNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 9:43 am

    Wow tshepiso that fantastic knock them dead with dat skirt girl!!!! I m on day 9 Hunger pangs thind of the past cant wait to do this diet again in six months.

  591. by angieNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 9:55 am

    So my car would not start again this morning. At least I can say I have not comfort eatened yet! If there was ever a time it would be now. Remembered my water cracker this morning – whoop and made myself a “soup” from my cup of tomatoes and green beens. Not sure how its going to taste as obviously could not taste it last night. Was very surpirsed that the ham filled me, was expecting to wake up with stomach pains from hunger. Scale till wonky, maybe a good thing, will wait until Day 7 seven and hopefully it will work then. Hopefully big surpise on the scale awaits

  592. by GAYNORNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 12:32 pm

    Hi Stellah

    That is wonderful news congrats and keep on eating healthy. By day 13 I only lost 4.6 but I’m happy with it….I will wait a few months and try again. I started to eat as healthy as possible to see if I can lose another few kg’s.

    Keep well…

  593. by LindyNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 1:08 pm

    wow Gaynor thats great!!!! congrats , Im on day 9 when i finish i will start again in about 3 months, but im also going to be doing the restricted one.

  594. by StellahNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 2:49 pm

    Hi ALL,
    Its day 9, feeling great coz everyone is giving me compliments that i have lost weight in a week!!!!

    Lindy, my start weight was 114kgs, too fat, dnt you think, i guess i should re do the diet after a month but am not sure whether its recommended.

    @Gaynor, i guess i had too much fat to loose thats why i lost that much.

    @Vhuye, the hospital metabolistic diet will keep you free from gaining weight for the next 1yr and you re do it after a yr.

    I cant wait to weigh again on Saturday evening. Am feeling sweet coz most of my suits are now fitting very well, its like magic but am inspired to loose more after the diet, shd i wait for a few months before going for this diet or i do it immediately beginning of next month, or is there anyother way i can shed off too much fat in 2 weeks apart from the diets?

  595. by TangiNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 3:10 pm

    Is it advisable to do this diet whilst exercising? I’ve just recently started a 5km in 5 weeks challenge?

  596. by YanieNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 3:13 pm

    Hey guys hope all of you are doing well. Just had my day 5 lunch grilled fish and raw tomatoes..i really enjoyed the fish made sure i grilled a whole medium one just for myself. GL to all of us

  597. by angieNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 3:28 pm

    Finally got to sit down with my soup at 3:30pm. Had my boiled eggs on the run at twelve. Actually very nice – just put a bit too much cayenne pepper in. made soup for tonight as well and added my chopped ham to it. I can do tomatoes and greenbeans like this! :)

  598. by VhuyeNo Gravatar March 6th, 2012 5:42 pm

    hi all
    stella thanx for the feedback.my friend and i want to start on the diet on sunday.this really is a great forum.

  599. by LindyNo Gravatar March 7th, 2012 7:29 am

    Hey Guys

    Day 10 for me, honestly cant wait to finish this diet 4 more days to go.

    Stella, You can only do the diet again in 3 or 6 months, meanwhile why dont you try weighless,start by buying the weighless magazine at the pick n pays supermarkets, and read testimonies Im sure that will inspire you and then you can join after, Im also going to join month end I have about 20 kilos to loose we are in a same boat girl.

    Good luck to all of you !!!!!!

  600. by angieNo Gravatar March 7th, 2012 8:18 am

    Morning. Day 4 started with its one cracker. I wait until I get to work to have my black coffee. Feel like I am getting sick. My throat is all thick and getting sore.

  601. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 7th, 2012 8:57 am

    Hie all

    I am on day 10. Food is no longer an issue to me. Actually when I see people eat, I feel pity for them, unhealthy eating. Those who are brave enough to continue dieting can try the Kellog’s K diet f0r 3 weeks. It works as well.

  602. by angieNo Gravatar March 8th, 2012 9:09 am

    Day 5. Carrot with water biscuit was a nice change for breakfast this morning. Diet with its restricted food is not an issue anymore,but definelty sick now. Not sure what to do regarding medication as Doc will probably give me throat lozenges to suck on and tablets to take. Weighed myself this morning and lost 3kg. Was expecting more as normally by this stage on the unrestricted diet I have lost almost 5kg. Will perserve until Day 7 and then decide to continue or not, also depends on how healthy I am at that stage.
    P.S. Car is still at auto electrician so not helping my happy mood.

  603. by LindyNo Gravatar March 8th, 2012 2:45 pm

    Hi Guys

    11th day for me and to tell you da truth I am fed up of this diet I miss real food, and I still have 3 more days to go this sucks.

  604. by NosoNo Gravatar March 8th, 2012 3:09 pm

    Day 11 for me too

    Lindy i cant say the same, honestly. If it were up to me i would do this untlill i reach my goal weight

  605. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 8th, 2012 4:22 pm

    Hie guys

    Day 11 and I am feeling sick from having yoghurt at lunch and cottage cheese for Dinner. I am lactose intolerant. Well I will hang in there, just 2 more days to go. I don’t miss food at all, I am used to the healthier food.

  606. by YanieNo Gravatar March 8th, 2012 4:50 pm

    Not long nw Lindy hand in there, Tshepiso I wish i was at day 11, i am only at 7. I hve weighed myself this morning and have lost 3.5 kg…I hope i lose more by next week…:) GL url

  607. by YanieNo Gravatar March 8th, 2012 4:50 pm

    *hang even..lol

  608. by Debbie Leigh WilliamsNo Gravatar March 8th, 2012 7:23 pm

    Hi all,
    I am on day 11 of the 14 day diet. On the 7th day I was supposed to eat a sensible dinner but had a very fatty pudding….the scale is showing only 2.2 kgs down, but I have lost many centimetres. I have been feeling great…but now starting to get tired. I will see it thru to Sunday. I haven’t used ketchup or any dressings at all. The steak is a bit much…and the eggs considering they take so long to digest and, I have been constipated too…otherwise, have a lot of energy! 9 kgs seems a long way off for me…Love the 4th day where I can eat as much yoghurt as I want and fruit!!

  609. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 9th, 2012 7:08 am

    Hie guys

    I am on day 12, finishing the diet tomorrow evening. I had a horrible night, was sick from the yoghurt and cheese. I am much better this morning though. I am kind sad that I have to finish the diet. I was used to eating healthy. Guess I will continue eating healthier meals. I have lost around 4 kgs but a lot of belly fat and cm’s. My stomach is completely flat, its like I never had a child but I have two. I hope to stay this way, I LOVE the new me.

  610. by angieNo Gravatar March 9th, 2012 10:21 am

    Hi there. I have had to pull out, so no Day 6 for me. Went to doctor last night and have a pharmacy of tablets and syrups to take. Lost three kgs while one. Funny thing is by now would have lost more if on unretstricted diet. Go figure.
    All the best to those still on the diet, have a good weekend.

  611. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 9th, 2012 11:19 am

    Hie

    I just had my fish, still sick from the cheese so have nausea. Just have to lie down a bit. My stomach can only take small portions of food maybe thats why I am also feeling sick,the fish was big. I am going to eat a very small piece of steak tonight.

  612. by NosoNo Gravatar March 9th, 2012 11:48 am

    hey Angie, which one is the Unristricted?

    @tshepiso, just hang in there….just 1 more day to go.
    Day 12 and i’m still ok, this week was slow for me though, but still happy with the end result.

  613. by angieNo Gravatar March 9th, 2012 1:59 pm

    Unrestricted one is where you have bread most morning instead of the one water biscuit.

  614. by jeniNo Gravatar March 9th, 2012 4:04 pm

    Hi all, have read so many motivating stories of success…well done. I saw many suffered headaches but no mention of taking anything for them. On this diet should you continue your daily amego and vitamines or stop everything for the duration of the diet?
    Starting the diet on Monday.
    thanx

  615. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 9th, 2012 4:22 pm

    Hie Jeni

    I did not take anything with the diet. I just wanted my body to detox and heal whatever ailment such as headaches on its own naturally. Water helped quiet a lot. I didnt want to overwhelm my body with anything extra to process.

    Hope this helps.

    Goodluck

  616. by jeniNo Gravatar March 10th, 2012 2:09 pm

    Hi Tshepiso

    Thanx so much for that. Am looking forward to the Monday kick off.

    chat soon

  617. by TshepisoNo Gravatar March 10th, 2012 3:38 pm

    Dear All

    My journey has come to an end. I will like to encourage all those who are in and are about to start the diet to work hard and finish the diet. The benefits are great and worthy. I have lost 6kg in total. More than I had bargained for with an extra 1 kg.

    I am very happy with my body size and general health. I have inspired a few others to try their luck.

    Good luck to you all and thanks for the support.

  618. by YanieNo Gravatar March 11th, 2012 3:19 pm

    Hi all, I had butter with my bread this morning couldnt stand the dryness..hope I hvent messed up too much..has anyone cheated…or should I just stop…its day 10…:(

  623. by CarolNo Gravatar March 12th, 2012 1:05 pm

    I must admit, this spinach-tomato combination is quite challenging. Trying my best to eat all but it is an uphill task!

  624. by jeniNo Gravatar March 12th, 2012 3:34 pm

    Hi all, on the 14 day diet I am doing I am sure there is a typo…..it says “now you can eat anything you like” for the 7th and 14th day??? Any thoughts?

  625. by NosoNo Gravatar March 12th, 2012 3:49 pm

    Well done David.
    Congrats to everyone who finished. I lost a total 6.5 KG’s in 13 days and i feel and look fantastic. I am starting the Special K diet tomorrow :)

  626. by CarolNo Gravatar March 13th, 2012 6:29 am

    Day 2 – Yesterday was my daughter’s 7th birthday and it took all my will power not to have a taste of her cake. So I am very proud of myself, though woke up with a headache today morning. having my cup of coffee and really looking forward to my breakfast tomorrow morning (read – slice of bread!!)

    Weight – 91.9kg… Yeah!!

  627. by funiNo Gravatar March 13th, 2012 2:07 pm

    Hi…i started the diet on the 10th saturday March.
    2day is my 4th day and i feel good with the results,though i havent weighed myself.
    my starting weight was 67 kg
    will keep u posted

  628. by CarolNo Gravatar March 14th, 2012 7:04 am

    Day 3 – Morning all. Thoroughly enjoyed my one slice of bread this morning. Must admit, I am not looking forward to lunch – dont particularly enjoy the green salad with lemon. All the same, the side effects not too bad and I will do my best to get to the end.
    as for weighing, I think I should get my hubby or househeld to hide the scales so that I dont keep jumping onto them at every opportunity. Might get discouraged. We’ll see.
    Weight – 91.2Kgs.

    All the best to those preparing to start, and those already doing it.

  629. by CarolNo Gravatar March 14th, 2012 2:19 pm

    This is tough…

  630. by MaBongiNo Gravatar March 14th, 2012 2:43 pm

    Finished my diet on the 19th of Feb and its all good, lost 9kg I’m on 71kg and still feeling great and still eating healthy and at the gym 4 times a week. It does work.

  631. by CarolNo Gravatar March 14th, 2012 2:57 pm

    @ Mabongi, Thanks for your post. Personally needed that. 10 days to go.
    Have you regained any of the weight back?

  632. by emaNo Gravatar March 15th, 2012 5:28 am

    Dear All,

    I started the 13 days diet (restricted version) last monday 12/3, so today I am on the 4th day. Diet is not an easy one, though the results worth all the difficulties. So far I lost around 3kg, which is really good for me, although I need another 5kg or so. First day was the hardest with the headache, but then it all gone by the second day. I actually feel full most of the time and my eating portion became less, I couldnt finish the apple yesterday :) . My husband started with me the diet, and he does not want to go on the scale yet :) Will keep you posted. Hang in there, its all about 13 days.

  636. by CarolNo Gravatar March 16th, 2012 8:04 am

    Day 5 – Still hanging in there… Was seriously tempted to quit yesterday but somehow made it through the night. I’ve got to make it through! Fingers and toes crossed.

  637. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 16th, 2012 8:22 am

    Carol, dont let the spinach and tomato day be for nothing. hang in there, when discouraged just squeeze into that dress that youve always wanted to fit in, the difference will keep u going.

  638. by CarolNo Gravatar March 16th, 2012 8:45 am

    Thanks Rehema!! Good idea. Will also carry one in my handbag, and when temptations threaten to get the better of me, I will just peek into the bag to remind myself why I am hungry! hehehe

    Hi guys … want to know its my 3days on the diet want to know if its possible i can have wine atleast few glasses or is it not acceptable?

  640. by CarolNo Gravatar March 16th, 2012 12:01 pm

    Hi Xabisa. As far as I know, one is not supposed to eat anything even chewing gum. So I guess wine is not acceptable.

  641. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 16th, 2012 12:30 pm

    agree with Caro, no wine allowed.

  642. by xabisaNo Gravatar March 16th, 2012 12:33 pm

    thanks! i ll stay awy from hanging with frends till im done. i must say today its very challenging.

  643. by CarolNo Gravatar March 17th, 2012 6:53 am

    So, Started day 6 with a cup of coffee and slice of bread. Weight down to 89.5Kg (disappointing – thought it would be more) but lost 2cms in my waist, and another 2cms in my hips (Yay!!). Jumped into my jeans that I could not fit into a couple of months ago so I am definitely pleased with the progress. Diet is very hard, but really really worth it. Just have a question for those who managed to complete it, did the weight lost stay off?

    Have a Great Day and weekend everyone!!

  644. by NatalieHNo Gravatar March 18th, 2012 2:35 am

    Hi guys and girls

    I want to start this diet but i do not consume pork products. What do I substitute the ham with? please help as i need to start as soon as possible. I have a deadline of 2 weeks before i hit the 40 mark.

  645. by CarolNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 6:29 am

    Day 8 – Down 4.4kgs. After reading the comments below, I had set a target of 5kgs so God willing I should achieve that by Day 9. Anything thereafter will be a welcome bonus. Yesterday was very tough but I pulled through without cheating, thank God!

  646. by CarolNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 6:29 am

    sorry, meant comments ‘above’.

  647. by rifonNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 8:05 am

  648. by StellahNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 8:14 am

    Hi Rehema, Thanx my dia, but i want to redo the diet after 3months coz i didnt hit my goal of weight loss but am feeling good though coz it took me 8 months to loose 4kgs in the gym but this only took 13days to loose 12kgs, so keep it up guys.

    @ Xavier, pliz dont even be tempted to take a sip of wine, unless you want to begin afresh from day 1

  649. by StellahNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 8:17 am

    @ Nonso pliz elaborate about the special k diet

  650. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 10:16 am

    Stella, am starting on Thursday, finishing exams on wednesday so want to get on this soooonest. I love this blog so inspires me. I actually dont have a target weight, i never weigh but want to get back into my fantastic size 14 or better yet size 12.

  651. by AnnaNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 11:22 am

    starting the diet today. about time – summer is coming and i cant fit into any of my last years clothes. starting weight – 84kg – height 165cm. pls wish me luck. will keep you all updated. is anyone else starting the diet today?!

    cant eat steak – can it be swapped for chicken?

  652. by AnnaNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 11:46 am

    i note some people say they eat toast? do you mean you have toast instead of cracker???

  653. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 11:56 am

    Anna there are different versions, some say crackers, others toast: i plan on doing the 8 grain bread . All the beat Anna will be right behind you.

  654. by emaNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 12:08 pm

    Hi all,

    its not an easy diet, but worth it i must say. I am on the 8th date of this diet, no cheating at all :) and i am so tired, although i dont get hungry anymore, only the dizziness and general weakness. I couldnt stand the spinach today :( I almost felt like vomiting, neither were i able to finish the egg and the tomato. I hope eating less will not affect the end result. I stopped weighting myself, keeping it till day 13th.

  655. by CarolNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 12:12 pm

    Hi Anna, There are two diets. The one with toast is the one posted by Stellah sometime back which is the one I am also following.

  656. by AnnaNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 12:45 pm

    thank you for clarification. just seen the other diet posted by Stellah. try to follow the original one.

    re: eggs – it says hard boiled eggs. can i swap them for poached eggs sometimes?

  657. by motivational success storiesNo Gravatar March 19th, 2012 9:28 pm

    Hello just want to tell this is great blog. Wish you good luck in future. Defently coming back here!

  658. by KrissyNo Gravatar March 20th, 2012 4:11 am

    Well, this is day 2 of the diet for me. The version I have doesn’t have any sugar what so ever. I weighed in @ 68.3kgs. I’m not doing this to loose weight, but I’m wanting to cut back on my sugar intake as I eat about $2 worth a day!! Just want to encourage everyone on this diet, it is hard but we can do it!! I’m only going to do the 7 day one I think.

  659. by CarolNo Gravatar March 20th, 2012 6:47 am

    Day 9 – Still marching on. Only four (very long) days to go but it is not so tough as last week.

  660. by StellahNo Gravatar March 20th, 2012 10:56 am

    Hi Rehema, pliz make sure you begin so that you can fit in ure size 14 clothes, wish you all the best.

    Do you know of any other diet i can do for the mean time as i wait for 3months to re do the one i did?

  661. by BrightNo Gravatar March 26th, 2012 7:21 am

    Hay guys! Day starting weight 78kg! Hope I can do this need to be able to where my Levi jeans again!

  662. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 26th, 2012 10:26 am

    Bright be encouraged, am wearing more items that id pushed to the back of the closet. Havent buttoned my jacket in a while, i feel sooo light.

  663. by janineNo Gravatar March 27th, 2012 2:40 pm

    Hello everyone

    I start this diet tomorrow. i did a 13 day diet similar to this one (VERY DIFFICULT) in 2010 and lost about 12 kg…then on day 12 called it quits. i was in tears, emotional and refusing to complete day 13. much to the confusion of my then boyfriend who was doing the diet with me. so after 12 days i lost 12 kg. i found out later i was pregnant…which explains why i was crying and acting irrational. now i have pregnancy weight to lose. im 110kg, unhappy and am not losing weight despite eating well and going to gym. SO im doing this as a 7 day diet (cos i found that one actually loses weight in the first 7 days, the rest of the days is kinda plateau). Im using it to catapult me to a feeling of well being cos i know how disheartening it is when you working out and eating healthy and not seeing changes on the scale. This diet will definetly cause a drop in weight on the scale and thats what i need right now…the scale to speak to me. I cant buy clothes- i live in Portugal now where people are typically small built…my Scottish ancestry means I have a tall and big frame so finding clothes is extremely difficult in Portugal. I have to lose wieght, because I need clothes. I will keep you all posted. Ciao Ciao fellow Saffers!

  664. by sonniNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 5:54 am

    Hey,, i’m on day 4 now to a similar diet, but found yesterday(day3) extremely difficult! I went to bed hungry and woke up this morning feeling dizzy and shaking. I had my breakfast at 5am. I feel better now that i have eaten a small apple extra:). Hope today is better, and that i don’t go to sleep hungry tonight. Please let me know if any of you felt the same?

  665. by sonniNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 6:08 am

    Oh,, and I lost about 3kg in that firt 3 days. I’m thinking its worth it if you stick to it :D

  666. by RehemaNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 6:34 am

    janine welcome aboard am on day 7 and its paying off havent really weighed myself but the tummy is going. Sonny its tough but dont give up, i also started off saying that id do the 7 days but after the results now am going for the long haul.

  667. by janineNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 8:32 am

    Hello again. Just fiished my cup of coffee from Day 1. Gonna keep busy in the house to keep my mind off eating. Isnt it amazing that there are so many times when one can go without food without even giving it a second thought but the minute you are on a diet, you think of food all the time. Its psychological. Ive tried every diet known to mankind…for the past two months have been on a diet with gym and have not lost a pound…yes i cheat from time to time but aint that life.I have just come to a point in my life where I cannot rationalise eating only clean…it doesnt make sense…yes it yields results but its not real life. I need to figure out how to balance clean eating with having desert and some carbs etc and still maintain weight loss. Im just not on board with all this low fat, high carbs…or low carbs and high fat cos in order to lose you have to stick with it for the rest of your life and after a week or so any diet gets boring to me. My mother lost over 20 kg in the 90′s from just cuting her lunch from 4 slices to two. And she never gained that weight back. i think we complicate stuff most times and the diet websites are full of complicated stuff so I am going to keep it simple: eat less and lose weight…the way folk used to do it before all the diet industry became a billion dollar industry. I will consider this 7 days a type of intermittent fasting period for me…fasting is good for the body and soul. Thats my mindset, and Im sticking to it. Happy Day 1 to me.

  668. by janineNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 8:37 am

    Oh just one thing: this diet is a bit different from the one i did in 2010. Tell me…what fruit to put in fruit salad? Are all fruits cool?

  669. by AngieNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 3:13 pm

    i started this diet today. Day 1 is not so great. I feel terrible. I can’t wait for steak this evening. Is it okay to take a multivitamin – hoping this will help UP my energy levels? I want to try do 13 days. I’ve a lot of baby fat that i need to shed. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the diet will work for me.
    So Janine i will keep an eye out for your posts to keep me going. This blog really is encouraging

  670. by janineNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 4:56 pm

    Hey Angie

    Im totally feeling you. i woke up this morning full of energy. Had my coffee…got busy with some ironing. Had my lunch…but gawsh am I not counting the hours to supper!!! Was so tempted to take an apple.Im absolutely hungry. That steak is in trouble for sure. Im only doing 7 days. As I said I did this diet before and only lost weight in the first seven days, the rest of the diet, no weight was lost. So i figure, why torture myself unnecessarily. Keep going yall. Tomorrow is about the same as today -might as well mentally prepare myself for it. About the vitamins, I dont know either, I take quite a medley normally but dont think that I can stomach pills now, so I will skip them for the next 7 days…or maybe I’ll take my fish oil or omega supplement. Not sure. Or after tonight’s steak, I’ll swallow them because now my stomach is so empty, I may gag! All the best

  671. by sonniNo Gravatar March 28th, 2012 7:28 pm

    It did go A lot better today! I wasn’t hungry like yesterday,, but now that the weekend is coming on I already planned that I will go play a bit of tennis to keep my mind busy. Tomorrow is day 5 and I saw it was no fruit or bread like day 1. @ janine preparing myself mentally sound like a good idea,, let’s do this!:D

  672. by janineNo Gravatar March 29th, 2012 11:40 am

    Go Sonni!!!

    Im on Day 2 today and I have to say Day 1 was hard simply because of the headaches. I slept with a headache last night and fortunately did not wake up with one. Just that feelign of emptiness. Amazing that a huge steak like the one i had last night simply disappeared. nogal I had it with a big lettuce (with lemon…YUCK!) salad. im used to colourful salads and typically dont eat lettuce with salad but spinach leaves so yeah it was hard putting that salad down. So Day 2 is similar to day 1 except I can have a cracker today…yay! I checked the scale but wont say anything until my 7 days are done.

  673. by sonniNo Gravatar March 29th, 2012 8:08 pm

    Janine I tried it with lemon too. It is a bit unappetizing I must say. But tomorrow it is day 6 for me and fingers crossed that I won’t give into temptation. I haven’t weighed myself again,, wil do it on day 11. Ill keep you posted on how much i lose..but untill then…strongs to eveyone! :D . After all…its only 13 days

  674. by janineNo Gravatar March 29th, 2012 9:04 pm

    Day 2 is over. Just had my 6-8 oz ham. Wow was that ham tasting salty. Im downing the water, then going to bed. The earlier I sleep the less I will want to raid the fridge. Just bought magnum minis from the supermarket…and they calling my name, so Im going to bed rather. Looking forward to day 3. PS: With my coffee this morning, I had 4 wholewheat crackers which is equivalent to one slice of bread. I cant say I felt too hungry today. Cheerio!

  675. by AngieNo Gravatar March 30th, 2012 8:49 am

    Day three today. Feeling so much better than i have over the last 2 days. I had a slice of wholemeal toast – which tasted SO good. Was kinda missing my starch. Dreading the boiled celery tonight. Trying to resist the temptation to weigh myself.
    Well done Sonni. You’ve done well. I’m worried about the weekend. Its easier following the diet whilst at work. Too many temptations out there

  676. by janineNo Gravatar March 30th, 2012 9:56 am

    Breakfast: black coffee or tea with slice w/w bread
    Lunch: two hard-boiled eggs, 1 cup green beans, 1 cup tomatoes
    Dinner: an 8-10 slice oz. of Ham, 2 cups green bean/tomato salad

    Hello all

    This is my Day 3. Went to the scale and yes I am still losing weight. My concern is what to do after this diet. I never got to find out the last time i did this diet because i found out I was pregnant and that was the end of that. I was thinking perhaps the best thing to do would be to go on a very low cal diet like
    1000-1200 calories a day (which is a bit more than this diet. I checked: this diet is about 700 to 1100 calories per day) And steadily very slowly adjust my caloric intake to coincide with my caloric needs. Cos the worst thing that could happen to me is if I were to put all that weight back on. This diet is a like a catapult for me-not a means to an end. So after this post, I will search for low cal diets so that i have a plan for next week. So lemme be off. Going to have my coffee and slice of bread. Mind over matter..mind over matter…mind over matter….

  677. by janineNo Gravatar March 31st, 2012 12:37 pm

    Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal and one cracker
    Lunch: one hard boiled egg, 1 cup raw carrots
    Dinner: one cup regular yoghurt, 1 oz. mozzarella cheese, 1 cup fruit salad

    Day 4…not looking forward to supper…gee Mozzarella Cheese..wow!!!! Off to have my black coffee and cracker

  678. by janineNo Gravatar April 1st, 2012 12:40 am

    Day 4 is done! No comment

  679. by janineNo Gravatar April 1st, 2012 9:02 am

    Day 5 today. Seems like attitude affects weight loss as much as calories. My mood worsened by the end of yesterday and the weight I had loss increased by 0.5kg. So I will myself to be happy today. Gots lotsa things to do today.

  680. by janineNo Gravatar April 2nd, 2012 6:47 am

    Doing Day 6 today, and nearly done. Hows everybody this monday morning?

    Breakfast: black coffee or tea with one to two packets of Sweet & Low or Equal and 1 cracker

    Dinner: two hardboiled eggs, 1 raw carrot

  681. by AngieNo Gravatar April 2nd, 2012 2:25 pm

    The weekend was terrible. Today not so bad. i wonder if i’ve lost weight. Trying to stay away from the scale till tomorrow. Also trying to mentally prepare for tomorrow DAY 7

  682. by PheladiNo Gravatar April 2nd, 2012 2:40 pm

    can eggs be Substituted? as am allergy

  683. by janineNo Gravatar April 2nd, 2012 7:12 pm

    Hi Angie
    Are you doing 7 days or 13 days. Im doing 7…so Im looking forward to tomorrow. The end of the round 1. Why was your weekend terrible?

  684. by janineNo Gravatar April 2nd, 2012 7:14 pm

    Pheladi, are you allergic to egg yolk or egg whites. APparently you cannot be allergic to yolk, only whites. If so, eat only the yolk.

  685. by MaryNo Gravatar April 3rd, 2012 9:16 am

    I am on day 2.Day 1 was not bad at all. I am hoping that day 2 wont be bad. My start weight is 63kg, My target is 58Kg, more loss will be higly appreciated as Im also keen to see how small my body can actually be if pushed.

    Good lick every one. :)

  686. by RehemaNo Gravatar April 3rd, 2012 11:43 am

    oh mary 63kg!!!!!! How i envy you? thats where ill be after yrs

  687. by AngieNo Gravatar April 3rd, 2012 12:57 pm

    Hi Janine
    My diet seems different to yours. Today is day 7 for me. I’m having only a plain cup of tea with no sugar for breakfast, nothing for lunch then grilled lamb and fresh fruit for supper.
    I am SO hungry right now. I keep sipping on warm water to try get me through the day. I still haven’t weighed myself yet. I wonder how much i have lost. I am doing 13 days. This diet has been so horrible. I am craving just about everything. I’m so sick of this and feel like i can’t go on anymore but will push on.
    Weekend was bad cause this is me with no energy but my toddlers (both boys) keeping me on my toes the entire time.

  688. by MaryNo Gravatar April 3rd, 2012 1:08 pm

    Hi Rehema.

    It’s a constant fight hey. the thing is Im very short and I really need to keep my weight as low as I can, ortherwise I’m over weight and feel depressed.

  689. by JanineNo Gravatar April 3rd, 2012 4:42 pm

    @ Angie.I’ll be very honest. I have not done this diet strictly. when i felt hungry, i had an apple. i have 3 kids and a husband who are constantly wanting my attention.i cant afford to walk around dizzy and unresponsive. yes i too have wished for everything. sometimes when i was hungry, i would have two wholewheat crackes with peanut butter and i have still lost weight. im only doing 7 days because i dont want my body to go into starvation mode which is counterproductive. tomorrow morning i will post my total weight loss. im happy with it because its a kickstart for me. after this i will eat normal for 1 day. then start my 1000 calorie a day diet which is 3 days. then i will eat normally again for one day…and so on and so on.

  690. by JanineNo Gravatar April 3rd, 2012 4:47 pm

    @Angie…if you are feeling ill, you should stop, and do it again in another 3 months. 7 days is fine. check your weight…you may be happy with what you see. All the best

  691. by MaryNo Gravatar April 3rd, 2012 7:26 pm

    @Janine, have you checked how much you have lost yet even when you altered the diet?
    My day 2 today and even though I was not hungry, I had a terribble headache for the whole afternoon till now.
    @ Angie you are right warm water seems to get me going as well,I took warm water with lemon afte my supper which was only HAM and it seemed to help a little bit.

  692. by JanineNo Gravatar April 4th, 2012 12:32 am

    Hi Mary

    I have checked my weight. As it stands I have lost 4 kilos in 7 days. I am happy with the weight. Tomorrow morning I will give the final weigh in. Why I say I am happy is because I have a long way to go yet and i did not want my body to starve. I am 106kg as it stands…my pre pregnancy weight was 84kg. My goal weight is 76kg so as you see i have lots more to lose. I will do this diet again in 3months time if i deem it necessary. I am going to gym and this diet kinda taught me how to survive on much less food without fainting. I am testing the waters. they say healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week…i lost 4 kg (8.4pounds) so that is a lot of weight…and i plan to maintain in by zig-zag eating so at to confuse my body. i dont want it to know im on a diet :-) . I start my 1000 calorie diet which will have me taking in just a bit more food and a bit more variety-thats for 3 days. then on Friday (good Friday) i will eat my pickled fish and hot cross buns like normal for that whole weekend, then Monday I start my detox 7 day diet (different from this one). after that i will eat normal for a day and start the real eating plan of intermittent fasting on a 1200 -1400 calorie diet. that will be my lifestyle fixture. Thats the plan, hopefully with exercise, i will get to my goal weight and be nice and toned. 4kg down…30kg more to go!

  693. by JanineNo Gravatar April 4th, 2012 10:22 am

    Hi all

    My 7 day diet is officially over. And the weightloss is confirmed at 4 kg in 7 days. I feel good. On to the next step. How are things with you?

  694. by AngieNo Gravatar April 4th, 2012 12:50 pm

    Hi All

    Well done Janine. Thats great news. Well done for sticking with it as well. All the best with the 1000 calorie a day diet. Tell me about it please.
    @Mary – just make sure that you are drinking lots of water. It really helps with the headaches.

    I weighed myself yesterday evening. As it stands i have lost 6kg in 7 days. I’m so happy. I really didn’t expect this. I thought 3kg at most. I’ve heard that the second week one doesn’t lose as much weight as the first – but if i could lose the same – i’d be ecstatic. Then i can try follow a healthy eating plan with exercise as well.
    Today i’m day 8 – so far so good. Seems that this diet alters your appetite somehow. Cause today i have struggled to finish the spinach, egg and tomato lunch. Not sure if thats a good thing.

  695. by JanineNo Gravatar April 4th, 2012 1:08 pm

    Hi Angie

    Congrats are in order. Well done. 6 kgs in 7 days…thats almost 1kg per day. A lot!

I found a 3 day 1000 calorie a day diet on the net that i will start tomorrow.

    Hi there… I’ve been thinking of starting this diet for a while now but was kind of afraid because it looks so tough. I am 40 years old, only 5ft 1 and this morning I was about 59kg. My ideal target would be 50. I am starting this tomorrow, so will see how much my starting weight will be then. My main concern is that I work quite long hours and I’m afraid my brain will be all fuzzy and I’ll be tired because of starvation, + a lot of you here mentioned headaches. Last summer I had managed to get down to about 53kg and I was ok, but somehow the kgs just kept on adding up because I wasn’t careful. Now I know I’m not that overweight but my clothes are tight and I feel uncomfortable. I would love to get back into my tight jeans and pencil skirts which at the moment are a no-go. However I am mainly doing this for myself as I need a BIG boost to my morale. Life has not been great for a while now and I’m constantly feeling tired and run-down, also due to a series of unfortunate events. I hope we’ll become friends and support each other through this. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Hello becky and good luck. I didn’t have any headaches and although I feel quite hungry and tired (my body is so heavy) I’m quite awake! I think it’s beacause of a multivitamin I take every morning (q10plus). I wouldn’t start this diet withought a vitamin pill. Good luck with your goal.

  701. by MaryNo Gravatar April 5th, 2012 8:51 pm

    @ MGAT I am defenately going for 13 days, just hoping to have reached my target(5kg loss)by day 7.
    @ Becky welcome. I only had a headache on day 2, and this diet has not been as hectic as I thought it would be. And taking lots of water really helps with the headaches.

    Good luck.

    Hiya, I haven’t been here in a bit. U know as I read more I don’t feel so bad as this diet didn’t work 4 me. I lost 1 kg in that week but remembered the principle in life, not everything is 4 every1. Angie, my motivator, ur name seems 2 b popular, trust u well. Just thought I’d come and leave a very interesting diet my mate & I tried. Lost 3kgs, cheated a little as 1 is suppose to lose up to 1stone=6.35kgs in 1 week. It’s called the egg diet so maybe after this 1 u can try the egg diet 7 days. Apparently the calories are 650 – 1000 at max on sum days. I’m thinking it’s a max on the days of lamb. The lamb, steak, chicken and fish r interchangeable or u can drop 1 4 another.

    OK here goes.. Day 1… weighed in at 59.7kg :-( (( I am following the 13-day diet (Danish hospital one) which is quite similar to this one and has been mentioned here before. For breakfast I had my black coffee with one sugar cube. Since today is a holiday in my country I didn’t have to go to work and instead I went out for 1 hour’s vigorous fast walking (including uphill). Now am back and my tummy is already rumbling :) Will fill up on water. I am determined to lose this weight and get back into my clothes. I hope this diet will work for me!!

  705. by BeckyNo Gravatar April 7th, 2012 7:05 am

    Well I must say, yesterday was TOUGH. I felt hungry all the time and I got terrible headache in the afternoon. It was a good thing I was not at work, because I could take two headache pills and lie down for a nap. I did not enjoy my food at lunch or at dinner, and with every mouthful I felt the food growing in my mouth and had to sip lots of water until I finished. Hmmm…. I hope I make it. My only hope is that as I go along, my body will get used to eating so little and I won’t feel so hungry all the time. On the positive side – this morning I weighed 58.7 – exactly 1 kg less than yesterday. I know that it’s probably all just water weight loss, but it’s a very encouraging start nevertheless. Good luck to everyone else here.

  706. by MGATNo Gravatar April 8th, 2012 11:47 am

    I’m finally at the 7th day!I’ve lost 2 kilos and I was fine until now. The diet I’m having sais also that the 7th day I must not eat ANYTHING for lunch!I’m starving!I think I’ll eat an egg!

  707. by BeckyNo Gravatar April 9th, 2012 7:59 am

    Hi Mgat.. How much weight are you aiming to lose? What was your starting weight? I am now on Day 4 and so far have lost not more than 1.8kg but I would like to lose a total of 9.7kg which I’m seeing as a long shot. If I manage to lose 6.7kg I’ll be satisfied but 9.7 would be awesome. This diet is tough. My version of the diet says that on day 7 you have a cup of tea in the morning, a slice of grilled meat (lamb or veal cutlet) for lunch and 1 fruit in the evening. It’s a little but at least it’s something. I have found so many variations of this diet online that I’m really confused. They all claim to work though!

    At the end of Day 2 I had serious doubts as to whether I’d be able to see this through, because I was feeling nauseous. On Day 3, I couldn’t even swallow my lunch and barely touched the tomato and steamed mangetout (replacing celery) on my plate, and just had an apple which I really enjoyed because I had been craving some kind of sweetness. Yesterday was Easter Sunday and for the first time ever I didn’t have any chocolates or other sweets – that was tough as I had a family lunch to attend where there were all kinds of nice things available, eg roast potatoes, chocolates, a lovely flan for dessert, etc. But I am proud to say I stuck to my guns and just ate what was on the diet sheet. I hope we will be rewarded for our pains! :-)

  708. by MGATNo Gravatar April 9th, 2012 5:11 pm

    Hello Becky!
    So I’m 165cm high and started the diet at 68 kilos. Now, (8th day) I’m 66,1 and 2nd day of period-so I hope I’ve lost more… To tell you the truth even the 2 first kilos are a success for me because I have ruined my metabolism . For exemple During last summer I was doing a diet for 7 weeks with a dietician and only lost 2 kilos! I’m 29 years old and had my first diet at the age of 10. Since then I’m constantly in all kinds of diets. This diet was my last hoppe. This january I touched the 70kilos which is the most I’ve ever been. So I started a balanced diet and lost the first 2 kilos in 2,5 months… I was really diapointed. This diet game me at least a big smile!!
    My general goal is to be at least 60kilos by June cause I’m feeling bad to where my bekini and (I’m Greek) and go with my boyfriend’s friends at the beach!! If I loose more I’ll be thrilled.
    Now, concerning this diet I think I’ll fix a dieting-plan based on this diet, I’m thinking of puting the 2 first days, the one with NO bread in a 7 days program. What do you think?
    P.S. Happy Easter for you, we will have it this sunday. I’m suffering too infront of these sweets…

  709. by BeckyNo Gravatar April 9th, 2012 9:20 pm

    We’re so alike in our thoughts Mgat! I am 10cm shorter than you and my realistic goal is 53kg but my dream goal is 50! I told myself that if I manage to reach the first target I will buy myself a new bikini. I am in Malta so summer is BIG here too, like in Greece. :)

    I have been dieting since age 13, because I always tended to put on weight very easily. The only way I managed to lose weight and reach 53 was every time I attended a 10 week course at one of our slimming salons here. The problem is however that once you stop going, even if you keep the diet, you start putting it back on, because at the salon they have these great machines for toning, and once you stop going, unless you exercise like crazy, you will start gaining, as happened every time with me.

    This diet sure is tough. Today I went to the cinema.. the smell of popcorn and nachos was making my mouth water.. but I just stuck to sipping water. I had made it a point to eat my fruit and yogurt before going to the cinema, but now I’m starving. Dreading breakfast tomorrow morning which for me is a shredded carrot (yuck!) and no coffee :-( Right now, everyone at my office is bringing lots of leftover Easter sweets to work and it is HELL lol

    BUT I do feel I’m losing.. I don’t care if it’s just water weight for now.. It’s much better than no loss at all. I am really curious to see if I will get back into my tightest skirt again which right now is not even zipping up. Let’s see how this goes! :-)

  710. by LeahNo Gravatar April 10th, 2012 6:19 am

    I have done it for 13 days and i am now weighing 62kgs. My target is 60kgs and was wondering how i can sustain the weight i lost and meet my target. Is it wise to continue with the program sparingly and take carbs maybe twice or thrice per week? What is applicable after the diet program?

  711. by BeckyNo Gravatar April 10th, 2012 7:31 am

    That’s great Leah… how much weight did you lose in 13 days? If I manage to stick to this diet for the whole 13 days, I’ll probably take a short break and start a sensible diet a few days later. There are so many diets one can follow, and I think that if you try not to exceed a maximum of 1000 calories a day, one will continue to lose, even if you eat carbs. I will try and fit in more walking because as it is I’m not finding much time to exercise and it’s so important especially for toning.

    This is still Day 5 for me. Time seems to be passing slowly on this diet, but am happy to report am down 2.6kg so far. This morning I couldn’t handle the breakfast, which was meant to be a grated carrot with lemon. I took one mouthful and couldn’t even swallow it, so I ended up eating nothing and am now just sipping some warm water with lemon. Onwards and downwards!

  712. by MGATNo Gravatar April 10th, 2012 9:41 pm

    Becky…That was it. Ruined. I couldn’t keep it on. Good luck to you all. xxx

  713. by BeckyNo Gravatar April 11th, 2012 7:58 am

    @Mgat: I know and I sympathise… this diet truly is very hard to stick to. Maybe it’s not for everybody either. Don’t give up trying to lose the weight though… just find something else that works for you. If I were you I would take a bit of a short break, and start afresh say next Monday with another eating plan that is not as strict and hardcore as this one. I wish you the very best of luck. Stay focused, keep your goal firmly in sight. I wish you well x

  714. by BeckyNo Gravatar April 11th, 2012 8:08 am

    My update: Today am on Day 6. Weight loss so far: 2.8kg, which is quite good I think! Although having said that, I am already very bored of the “food” on my diet. The repetition of certain so-called meals makes this a very monotonous diet. So I find myself starving, tummy rumbling, but not even looking forward to meals because once it’s in front of me I don’t like what I’m eating. I especially dislike when I have to have carrots or other vegetables, because I am finding them very bland and sickening. My body is craving sweets like crazy, and the fact that you cannot even have a sugar free chewing gum or sugar free sweet is maddening. When you get that sweet craving, no matter how much water you knock back, it just doesn’t go. Also I miss my teas throughout the day. So I have started filling my mug with hot water instead and sipping on that at my desk… placebo tea. How sad is that? The next 7-8 days cannot pass soon enough – these are the longest 13 days of my life.

  715. by BeckyNo Gravatar April 12th, 2012 5:03 am

    Day 7: You know what? I think that’s it for me. I’m up 100g today and it’s very disheartening after the hardship I’m going through. I don’t think this diet is for me either and will find something more sustainable and long term. At least I managed to lose 2.7kg in all. Yesterday was a bad day because I was literally starving all day, couldn’t focus in my dance class and my legs were wobbly. Consequently even my dancing suffered and I won’t have it. I will still continue striving to lose weight but not in this extreme way. I am now 57 kg, meaning I have 4 kg left to lose until I reach my first target of 53kg. So I wish all the rest of you the best of luck and will still continue to strive towards my goal. Bye.

  716. by MaryNo Gravatar April 15th, 2012 6:04 pm

    Hi everyone. Today i’m on 7th day and i’ve lost 5kg! I’m só happy and motivated to continue and do it for one more week. To be strong enough for the next week, today i broke the diet…. I ate a tuna salad (full of lettuce) and a meat pastry! Now i feel a bit guilty and wishing for not gain any kg about that and continue to loose more… I’ m stiil have to loose 3/4kg! I started the diet with 69kg and i hope to have 60kg, i’m 1.72m! bye. Have a good week.

  717. by RehemaNo Gravatar April 16th, 2012 7:21 am

    hi mary fantastic to hear, a cheat meal doesnt hurt so long as you get right back, i think that it helps get over a plateau period, cheats the body a little after getting used to what u r taking in.

  718. by EdithNo Gravatar April 16th, 2012 8:55 am

    Hi All,

    A friend of mine shared this diet on Friday 13th. I officially started on Sunday 15th. Today is day 2 for me. I am going to weigh my self today. I have to loose min 10kg. I weigh around 85kh now.

    Chat later.

  719. by MaryNo Gravatar April 16th, 2012 12:21 pm

    Thanks for your reply Rehema! Today i’ve started my second week, let’s see whats happen! Of course, i haven’t lost any pound from yeasterday… See you! Happy week for everyone! ;)

  720. by ZinieNo Gravatar April 17th, 2012 1:42 pm

    Hi
    Guys i did the diet 2 months ago and i looked beautiful and all my bums and hips were gone.but now i have gained a few kilos back….I guess the only way to stay in shape and maintain is if u eat healthy,with me there was too much cheating and wrong food eating.

    I am doing it again for a week next week then i will maintain a healthy diet..Took advantage of the fact that i go to gym and i run in the morning :-(

  721. by MintyNo Gravatar April 18th, 2012 9:25 am

    Hey Guys..

    Started this diet on 16th April substituting beef and ham with egg whites and tofu.. since am a vegetarian but dont mind eating eggs… And guess what today 3rd day in the morning I weigh less… Hope the weight dosent come back :-)
    Starting weight 70kgs, today 68.5kgs… Amazing!!
    Has anybody tried the meat substitutes??

  722. by MintyNo Gravatar April 18th, 2012 9:30 am

    Never knew before.. dry toast can be sooo yummy and filling!! Am so motivated… Any tips on maintaining the weight?? Hope it dosent come backkkkk!

  723. by DemetraNo Gravatar April 19th, 2012 9:32 pm

    Hello! Am on day 4!! Am not drinking the black coffee and i don’t eat spinach and tomatoes…is that ok ?

  724. by JanineNo Gravatar April 22nd, 2012 1:02 am

    blah blah blah….so I lost 4kg and put all of it back on when i returned to normal healthy eating. was a waste of my time and effort. looking to lose 1kg a week-decided ot keep it realistic. in 10 weeks i could be down 10 kilos. looks like the best way to get it all off for good is slowly. all the best to all of you’s. i think this diet is best for someone that needs to shed lots of pounds quickly for a specific event, like a wedding. long term its not effective. im sad about that. cheerio fellow dieters!

  725. by DidiNo Gravatar April 23rd, 2012 2:02 pm

    Hello all,

    I am on day 2 and I just had lunch, I must say chewing on those leaves made me feel like a goat(lol). I do not have a starting weight from yesterday, but this morning I weighed 71 kg’s. I will be using that as my starting weight. My aim is to lose about 6 kg’s at the very least 4.
    :0, I shall wait and see.

    Day 4 for me today … so excited I’m 2kg down -(78kg) my goals weight for now is 75kg. This time Im taking it slower.

  741. by DidiNo Gravatar April 27th, 2012 3:48 pm

    Day 6 for me today, only meal of the day left is supper. I’m quite chuffed with myself, although I had a terrible dream where I ate something that I wasn’t supposed to eat and I had to stop, it was devastating :( . Thank God it was only a dream. The dream was probably triggered as a result of my struggle yesterday, I almost gave up all because of PMS.

    Anyhow, I am only 2 kgs down so far and I’m not complaining. Half full is always better than empty I think.

    Good luck fellow dieters. Stay in there.

    Hey everyone…Day 4 Gone,i lost 2 kg so far,i think its a bit slow because i’m on my MP. :( but my husband lost 3kg.Hoping to lose 3kg more.i’ll weigh again on monday

  743. by TanyaNo Gravatar April 28th, 2012 8:50 am

    Good Morning Everybody, day 5 for me and I’ve lost 3kg (weight now 77) whooo hooo. Enjoyed the carrots and lemon juice for breakfast.

    Im hoping to loose another 2 before day 7 – I’ve learned from the previous time that you loose most of the weight in the 1st half of the diet and the 2nd half is very slow. The purpose of this diet is to change your metabolism and digestion and you should finish the 13 days otherwise the diet will no have any effect.. My boyfriend says I never finish anything … so this time I’m gonna stay positive and finish this diet. I setting a realistic goal (of 75kg) for myself and hopefully I will not get demotivated again.

    8 days to go. Good Luck to everybody!

  744. by keNo Gravatar April 28th, 2012 6:49 pm

    Hi
    I just found this website I just finished day 4!! But I cheated bad today ate a packet of sweets that I found at discem they were too yum!! So I decided not to eat lunch. But I just need to know if this diet will still work for me? I was doing so well untill today :( I’m gonna carry on as I was before with noo cheating I just couldn’t resist hehe!

  745. by MGATNo Gravatar April 28th, 2012 7:30 pm

    HI KE! I think the idea of this diet is “not” to eat sugar inorder for your body to burn its fat. I think that when you ruin it you must eat but not bred,pasta, sugar etc. I did this diet 3 weeks ago I stopped after one week (only lost 2 kilos) then ate normaly for 2 weeks (lost 0,5 kilo and although they say that we mustn’t repeat it too soon, I did it again after 2 weeks. Now I’m on day 6 and I have lost 1,4 kilos. I started to feel dipressed and I dream of chocolate but I want to lose more.
    Eat something but something like beef and salad. Good luck

  746. by MGATNo Gravatar April 28th, 2012 7:38 pm

    tanya, hello. You said “One of my friends lost 45kg in 1 year on this diet”?? Is that true? How? For how long she did it? I want to loose 5 more till summer and 10 more generaly. I’m now 64,8 and 165 high

  747. by keNo Gravatar April 29th, 2012 7:12 am

    MGAT thanks for reply :)
    Today I’m starting day 5 and not going to cheat I haven’t weighed myself yet but I’m sure I’ve now put on the weight I lost and I had only lost 1kg but I’ll just carry on being good I’m doing it for the full 13 days so let’s see how it goes!!
    Good luck as well :) uve done so well

  748. by TanyaNo Gravatar April 29th, 2012 8:36 am

    @MGAT, yipp that is correct she lost the weight 2 years ago and never picked it up again. She did the 13 day diet – took a 2 month break – and started the diet again. Girl with all due respect if you weight is 64.8 and heigt 1.65 you are not overweight my love. But good luck anyway!

    @Ke good luck and don’t eat sweet rather have fruit if you need sugar. Remember the purpose of this diet is to correct you metabolism and you follow the diet strictly you can loose up to 9kg’s in 13 days.

    Day 6 for me – lost 3 kg still 77kg … but I feel GOOD.

  749. by keNo Gravatar April 29th, 2012 8:45 am

    Tanya that’s amazing!!! Well done
    Thank goodness I just weighed myself and I have not put on weight from yes I stayed the same so I’m happy :)
    Good luck as well!!! And 9kg would be amazing in 13 days!! Wow hope I can do that even 6 would be ok for me!

  750. by TanyaNo Gravatar April 30th, 2012 10:22 am

    Thank ke

    Day 7 for me …. and 4kg down (weight 76kg) – Have not cheated once and are determined to finish this time.

    6 days to go !

  751. by EshaNo Gravatar April 30th, 2012 12:16 pm

    DAY 7 FOR ME…..3KG DOWN…AND BY HUSBAND 4.3 KG…I’M HAPPY

  752. by melissaNo Gravatar May 1st, 2012 3:49 am

    i am from the usa and just started today. where is everyone from why there are no measurements in pounds. kinda confusing. so far doing good hungry this evning for sure. sooooooo how do you prepare a lettuce and celery salad or the green beans and tomatoes?

  753. by TanyaNo Gravatar May 1st, 2012 8:28 am

    @ Esha – congrats to both you and your hubby

    @ Melissa – I think everybody is from South Africa on this blog.

    Starting with day 8 today. 4.5kg down (weight 75.5kg). Had 2 tomatoes at 20:00 last night (wondering if that is considered cheating?). Anyway I’ve decided to not go to gym until Im finish with my 13 days. Going to gym makes me hungry and then I can not keep to the diet.

    Good Luck to everybody

  754. by enjabutNo Gravatar May 1st, 2012 7:46 pm

    Q? What happen if you missed one ingredient or you missed Lunch for some odd reason? What is the consequence of carrying on if you skipped one lunch?

  755. by DidiNo Gravatar May 1st, 2012 11:21 pm

    @Melissa
    I usually just chop the lettuce, slices of cucumber then add a bit of lemon juice and pepper just for flavour.

    The green beans I just boil with a bit of salt and the tomato I eat raw. So when sis you start?

    Today(May 2nd) I’m starting day 11, I hate the lunch but I will get through it. Even though I’ve just lost 3 kgs in 10 days, I am definitely sticking it out till the end :) , I’ve come this far after all.

  756. by AngieNo Gravatar May 2nd, 2012 6:26 am

    Hi there , I am in day 3 today .I am verywell and fine no headache and not hungry at all. So far I am loosing 2,1 kilogram when I check my weight this morning .I started the diet with the weight 59,4 kg . My husband loosing 2.5kg too. But we follow the 13 days diet in different plan. They not mention as much as you want . Its very strictly said like ex: 1 apple or orang or pear . 1 slice toast ..200 gram steak etc … But from reading all the information upstairs where everyone never have the same weght lost , in the end of the day the diet is depends of everybody dicipline . Giving a tiny salt and paper I think it didnt harm you at all ,we did it and still loosing weight .Drink minimum 2 liter of water is important ! According to my friends who did it already and loose very variation between 4 till 7 kilo .. The first till 4 days avoid to do exercise and follow your body to take a nap when you feel too .. The fift day your body start to adjust and you can do alot of activity thats the advise from my friend if I could share with you guys .hope it will help and dont forget water water water ! It is very important! Wish me luck guys …

  757. by TanyaNo Gravatar May 2nd, 2012 6:53 am

    Good Morning everybody …. today is day 9 for me. Ham again tonight no no no – I hate ham!!
    Weight unchanged on 75.5 kg.
    Good luck to everybody

  758. by AnjaNo Gravatar May 2nd, 2012 2:48 pm

    Hi all. I’ve read all the replies above and I am inspired to start this diet as soon as I have shopped the necc ingredients. I would like to know if taking Hoodia as a hunger suppressant will influence this diet?

  759. by TanyaNo Gravatar May 3rd, 2012 6:38 am

    Good Morning all,

    Day 10 for me (weight unchanged on 75.5kg) – 4.5 kg in 10 days not bad. My goal weight is 75kg soooo I still have 4 days to get rid of this last 0.5kg.

    @Anja I dont think you should take a hunger suppressant as this diet is suppose to correct you metabolism – if you follow the diet correctly you are not suppose to get hungry in between.

  760. by MegNo Gravatar May 3rd, 2012 10:37 am

    Good morning,

    Starting this today at 154lb (11 stone), which i think translates into 70 kilo… my ultimate goal is 55 kilos so hoping this will get me started!

    I also wanted to know do we HAVE to eat the tomato/spinach or can we substitute for similar veg like say broccoli or lettuce?

    Good Luck to everyone already on the diet!

  761. by TanyaNo Gravatar May 3rd, 2012 5:37 pm

    Day 10 done only 3 more days. I will weigh tomorrow morning again.

    @Meg I think it is better stick to the diet 100 %. You can make a nice omelette with spinach filling and its actually very nice!

  762. by GretaNo Gravatar May 3rd, 2012 9:30 pm

    Hi fellow fat haters, i heard about this diet 3 days ago and decided to start it, i ve always been obese and reading all your weights has made me realise how heavy i am. My starting weight was 111kg after day 1 lost 1 kilo, today was day 2…….not sure if i should weigh myself tomorrow. Im really looking forward to the 2 toast tomorrow morning…..lol how desperate is that…….good luck everyone :)

  763. by AngieNo Gravatar May 4th, 2012 2:02 am

    Hi Greta , dont give up ..keep going … This diet is really works …

  764. by MegNo Gravatar May 4th, 2012 9:49 am

    @Tanya – thanks i will do that then, just think ill have to start on monday for me to be able to get all the stuff in

    @Greta, good look and congrats on the kilo already!!

  765. by DidiNo Gravatar May 4th, 2012 4:39 pm

    Hi guys, it’s day 13 for me and I have one meal left to the finish line. Life’s pressures and stresses are pushing me to buy a bottle of wine tonight. I am really stressed and I am trying very hard to fight temptations, but I feel really weak today. I hope I can stay in this until I go to bed, the next few hours are crucial for me. Wish me luck.

  766. by GretaNo Gravatar May 4th, 2012 7:40 pm

    @ angie and meg thanks, today is almost over and it was so hard as the rest of the family got chinese take out……it was torture

  767. by TanyaNo Gravatar May 5th, 2012 7:24 am

    HI Everybody …. day 12 and 5kg down …. whoooo hoooo I weigh 75kg. I feel so good, my skin looks better and Im soooo motivated. I reached the 75kg goal … next goal is 70kg by the end of May (that is just over 1kg a week). tomorrow is my last day. After the diet my gonna continue without sugar and carbs …. and yes Im going to gym.

    @Greta – good luck girl. One of my friends lost 45kg (in one year) on this diet and never picked it up again. So yes it really works

    @Didi – hope things are but better for you. Rather have whiskey instead of wine. I have whiskey and tab or whiskey and sprite zero (if Im not on the diet)

    Good luck to everybody

  768. by SammyNo Gravatar May 5th, 2012 8:05 am

    hi!! i am on a birth control pill and a anti depressant. Will this diet work for me?? Starting tommorrow.. i now weigh 81.2 kg, hoping to lose no less than 8kg. PLEASE ANYONE ANSWER ME ASAP!!!!

Good luck !

  770. by TanyaNo Gravatar May 7th, 2012 7:06 am

    Good Morning everybody, I’ve successfully completed the 13 day diet and lost 5 kg. I know the rules of the diets says you have to take a 2 month break before doing the diet again but Im starting with day 1 again today. I enjoy the diet and like the food …. sooo I have nothing to loose except for another 5kg by the end of May.
    Good Luck to everybody

  771. by MariskaNo Gravatar May 7th, 2012 11:57 am

    Hi all, I started today and have a couple of questions. When you look at the diet it mentions Breakfast., lunch and dinner. Do you not eat anything in between, can you have coffee again during the day, can you split your meal for the hungry periods between meals or not?

  772. by AngieNo Gravatar May 7th, 2012 3:23 pm

    Hi everyone

    I haven’t been on this site for a while now. I lost about 6 kg when i did the diet (13 day diet). It was hard but the results are certainly worth the effort you are putting in now. for me personally – it has helped me reduce my portions and i can easily do without starch unlike before. I think i have put on some weight but everyone around me thinks i’m still losing so not sure hey. But definately am trying to maintain a healthy diet.

    @Blue Topaz – I will definately try that diet. Thank you
    @Janine – once you have kids, i think your metabolism or is it age definately changes. When i was you nger i didn’t have to struggle so much to lose weight. And by the way i am 32. Imagine when older. some friends of mine combined this diet with exercise and they reported a 15-20 kg weight loss in total. I couldn’t – i was just too weak most times.

    I would love to do 7 days sometime soon but not sure if its advisable to do so. I think this diet is a good way to kick start a weight loss regime – and then hope to keep it off.

  773. by SammyNo Gravatar May 7th, 2012 3:55 pm

    Thanks Angie!! tommorrow i’m starting on day 3… I hope this works and that i wont gain all the lost weight back or even more :/

  774. by SofiaNo Gravatar May 7th, 2012 7:35 pm

    Hello,
    I am starting Day 1 today and I am really hopeful to have this diet work. I tried it once, but gave up after day 2. I am going to stick to it this time. I am 243 pounds. I will post my updates. Hoping to get some support in order to survive these 13 days.

  775. by MatshasiNo Gravatar May 7th, 2012 11:04 pm

    Hi guys
    Well I started my diet this morning. The day went well, I haven’t cheated. My current weight is 70kg & my ideal weight is 58kg. So if I strictly follow this plan for the next 13 days I should be able to reach my goal with ease…
    Resists temptation – Yes I Can (fingers crossed)

  776. by PoohmlaNo Gravatar May 8th, 2012 9:40 am

    hey guys… all i have been doing all morning is reading your comments and yes i am definetly starting tomorrow.

    I bought all my stuff yesterday and i am so ready… I will weigh myself in the morning so that i know my starting weight and then again after the 13 days cause ill be doint the 13 day diet.

    All the best to everyone who is starting and those that have started….

  777. by MatshasiNo Gravatar May 8th, 2012 2:15 pm

    Hi everyone
    I’m on day 2 & still going strong. One problem though “Celery” I don’t like it, taste & the smell. So for my green salad I used lettuce,cucumber & peppers, is that allowed ?

    Hi all, please can someone answer me. How do you follow this diet as it only mentions breakfast, lunch and dinner, I have difficulty with my sugar constantly falling. Does it mean you can only have coffee in the morning and not again later during the day and night?

  780. by poohmlaNo Gravatar May 9th, 2012 8:40 pm

    Hey strong people… Day 1 done, it was so difficult, was a bit dizzy n had a headache.
    I am proud of me because I am not disciplined but I think the challenge is to start and for me the worst is over.

    Starting weight 84kg’s, will weigh again on day 14.
    Stay focused team.

  781. by bianca247 hoping to lose weightNo Gravatar May 10th, 2012 8:20 am

    hey guys keep on keeping on …i am on day 4 and i am going strong. I have taken my entire afternoon meal and divided into two. i eat the first half in the morning at 10 and the other half at 2pm. I have noticed i don’t get hungry until dinner…it really helps…but i don’t see the difference because i have been not eating any starch before i started this diet…but am hoping for the best.oh my starting weight has been 111kg i lost 8kg in one month by eating no starches…I started a month ago..i have started this diet because it is less calories …after this diet i will go back to my no starches…i really need to lose weight…it becomes very depressing when you can no longer do the things you use to do…and when i jumped on the scale at the doctors rooms and it said 111kg’s i cried myself to sleep that night…i lost myself, self esteem and confidence….and everyday i get it back…i suppose when you get married you tend to lose yourself and that is the worse thing a women can ever do….well good luck guys…

  782. by Nolly seitshiroNo Gravatar May 10th, 2012 2:00 pm

    this diet is all good i must say. im on it the third time now. normally i do it to loose a lot then start eating healthy on less quantities going to the gym to firm because while doing it im low on energy, so i cant do gym.

    i love it ;)

  783. by sueNo Gravatar May 10th, 2012 10:07 pm

    Hi guys.. so great to see all the comments on the diet.. I want to start on Monday, but need to know if I can substitute ham – cant eat that. Also, can I use a zero calorie sweetner in my coffee and is it okay to use lemon as flavouring on my chicken etc.? Please help.

  784. by poohmlaNo Gravatar May 11th, 2012 1:18 am

    Hey Sue,

    I don’t eat ham so I substituted with chicken polony. All the best 4 Monday, today is day 3 4 me.

  785. by SmaNo Gravatar May 11th, 2012 6:39 am

    Hi ladies, today was day. 3for me nd I must say I’m beginning to love the bitter coffee as I got to the weight I’m at because of my love for sugar and now it’s all good I suppress my hunger by increasing my water intake and so far it works now my headache is back and on my way home from work I feel a bit disoriented but I got a partner and so far we doing really good and holding each other’s hands all the way I look forward to the results as I can already literally feel my stomach shrinking.

    Let’s hang in there until we make it :)

  786. by sueNo Gravatar May 11th, 2012 9:50 am

    @ Poohmla, Thanks so much!! :) Are you doing the diet at the top of the page [7 day diet] or the 13 day diet some of the other people on this site are using. I see you are on day 3… have you started to lose anything as yet? Good luck!! I’m hoping to cure my binging on all the wrong things by doing this diet.. hopefully will keep off what I have put on. I was 50kg before baby… 62kg after baby… started losing while breast feeding.. then had hormonal problems and put on more weight.. I went on a diet and lost weight.. went back to 62kg. Stopped dieting and within a year my weight ballooned to my present 73kgs!!! :( :( I really hope to gain some control starting with this diet!

  787. by SmaNo Gravatar May 11th, 2012 3:07 pm

    Iyho! Ladies my partner @phoomla and I just had a low blow we got to weigh ourselves today , 3 days into the diet I find out I weigh 85,3Kg mind u this the 1st tym I weighed myself in a long time and eventhough I was disappointed at myself I know we’ll make it because I already feel a little lighter, I slept like a baby and stairs at work didn’t leave me panting and sweating as usal today. So ladies let’s keep at it since we got nothing but the weight we so do not want to loose *wink*

  788. by poohmlaNo Gravatar May 12th, 2012 10:53 am

    Hello everyone,

    Sue, I am on the 13 day diet.

    Let’s keep going team.

  789. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 13th, 2012 9:55 pm

    Hi everyone! I get so motivated reading all the comments here. I decided to start this diet tomorrow. I have one question though, can i consume supplements like multivitamins while on this diet? Lets motivate each other guys! All the best ~ Thanks =)

  790. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 7:00 am

    Day 1- had my black coffee for breakfast. I usually had vanilla yogurt & coffee for breakfast but today means no yogurt. Looking forward for lunch & dinner. I’m a bit confused whether to follow the unrestricted or restricted diet. I need to make myself busy to forget about foods. I decided to not taking multivitamins though

  791. by tellaNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 7:27 am

    Hi there, I am also starting the diet today, friends of my mother did it and lost a lot of weight. I have trouble losing that few exra kgs, for have been on anti depressants so let’s see if this works for me!@ deena, looks like we are starting togeter today! How many cups of coffee can I drink??

    Hi everyone. wow, its so great to read this blog – i get more motivated. i just started today :) . thought i was going to dies – but actually i am not. the blogs are really helping. i woke up and decided to start today – so i havent weighed myself. i will do so tonight, and get a starting number. So Deena, Tella – we starting this together. good luck – lets motivat each other. Tella – it seems you can have as many cups as you wish….So heres to day one :)

  795. by tellaNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 11:34 am

    @ porche, that’s great, I am sure we can motivate and help each other! I went to the shops to get all the foods and can’t wait for tonights steak! Are you going to grill yours in the oven? So far so good, I am a bit hungry but hopefully after lunch I will feel beter.

  796. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 12:11 pm

    Hey Guyz….

    I would just like to know, can males also do it??? Cos from the names I see here I cant work out if some people are males or females…. Cos I am also on the verge of starting after reading this inspiring blog….

    I feel so motivated….B ut concerned if this will work in the case of males since we males are genetically having a tougher fat content than fermales…

  797. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 1:17 pm

    Had 2 boiled eggs & spinach for my lunch & i must say it was one of the least meals i ever had. I sprinkled some spices & squeezed a lime onto the spinach to make it taste better. Not feeling hungry anymore now. Cant wait for steak tonight! All the best to @tella & porche! I’m so happy i can start this diet with someone. I am gonna grill my steak on the pan. Then finish my meal with green tea perhaps.
    @tella, i hope u will see improvement when u weigh yourself tonight. I think i’m gonna weigh myself on day 3.
    @Nthato, i guess everyone can do this diet. I heard it is practised in Danish hospital. Besides, females have higher amount of fat than male. Males have larger muscle mass though. All the best everyone!

  798. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 1:19 pm

    @Nardo..do you have chicken / beef luncheon there? I think that is the best to substitute ham =)

  799. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 1:32 pm

    @tella, thanks dear…

  800. by NardoNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 3:54 pm

    thanks Deena :)

  801. by sueNo Gravatar May 14th, 2012 4:05 pm

    Hi everyone… day 1 almost done and dusted :) I had no problems with hunger.. drank loads of water.. had 2chopped boiled eggs in a bowl of raw spinach for lunch [little bit of salt on eggs].. quite enjoyed it. Looking forward to my supper of pan-grilled steak with green salad [using watercress, rocket, spinach,cucumber and cos] Sure this is gonna be divine! I dont usually dress my salad, so I’m happy. Wish I could use some lemon on my steak just to liven it up a bit though. Bon Apetit everyone!!!

  802. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 5:06 am

    Hi everyone! Does anybody know how to cook a delicious moist steak? Mine always turn out chewy & dry…and i ended up burn my steak last night haha
    Really wanna know how you guys make your steak =)

  803. by tellaNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 6:49 am

    Day 2!! Feeling good, and woke up not feeling hungry at all. @ Deena, I also tried to grill mine last night and it was okay,just a bit burned on the edges. My boyfriend said next time he will braai it for me, so think that might work the best? I am struggling with the 2l water a bit lol especialy with the cold weater

  804. by PorcheNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 8:17 am

    Morning yall. Day 2, i woke up feeling great, not tired at all. I was tired yesterday, but when i woke up, i felt good. i normally sleep tired and wake up tired. My steak was dry. lol. but dinner was good :) ,lol. @tella i put it in the oven, lol, it was cheewwwy. great substitute for gum, which i miss so much. @Nthato, i am sure you can give it a bash, shocking your body into weight loss should not be gender dependant, i am no expert but give it a bash. @Tella, try take a little water bottle with you to work. take a glass when you wake up. keep a bottle in the car – to remind you, and take two bottles maybe after breakfast(if you havent had some in the morning) or before and after lunch, and then before/after supper. you would have drank at least 2.5l. @Deena – we are so doing this :) yippe yay. Oh, i am allergic to wheat, can i eat rye bread for the toasy bit?

    Hi guys, I am really sticking to this diet religously. It is day 10 and I have lost 5.6 kg, my husband 8.1kg and my daughter 5.2kg. I am so sorry that I didn’t take measurements before we started, as I can honestly feel a tremendous amount of difference. I had a gastric bypass about 7 years ago and lost a staggering 56kg. I have since picked up 15 kg of which I have now lost 5.6kg. I fitted some of my skinnier clothes yesterday and was amazed that they fitted me again. Even though I have another 9+kg to go, I feel amazing. Although my diet ends on Friday night, I have definately acquired the inspiration to carry on eating healthier. The funny thing is the further you go into this diet, the less hungry you are. Keep yourself busy and eat slowly because then you will feel fuller. We’ve all discussed and fantasized about what we’re going to eat on Saturday and had so many laughs about it. Just stick to it and see the major difference. Remember to measure and weigh before starting, which should preferably be on a Sunday, then you only have one weekend of dieting……..Good luck girls! I am on FB if anyone would like to ask me questions. Diane van Schaik Conradie

    Day 2.. woke up with no hunger pangs at all. Had a glass of water immediately. Already on my third glass for the day. Had my coffee and looking forward to some steak for lunch… hopefully it wont be as dry and chewy this time!
    @Deena – I dont know how to make the perfect juicy steak, but I intend steaming mine in a pan with a little bit of salted water so that it doesnt dry out.. then very quickly searing the outsides in a very hot pan. My thinking is that the meat should be juicy on the inside but grilled on the outside….hope it works!
    Have a great day everybody!! :)

  807. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 10:35 am

    Hey porche

    I am so gonna give it a bash…. Cos I’m such a cook and especially this winter, eish I like my soups… But I guess that the goal in much more bigger than the soups hey…. Good luck my pals…. I’ll be starting on the 28th (Monday)….. ; )

  808. by MyraNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 11:08 am

    Day 2 not going good huger pains….. Neat to be strong go girl go

  809. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 3:10 pm

    Day 2- had green tea after i woke up, and suddenly felt like vomiting! My head was dizzy too. Maybe i was having the green tea on empty stomach. Went to sleep to ease the dizziness then had black coffee & a slice of whole wheat bread. Love the bread!
    Today is better than yesterday..i can concentrate at class and not feeling hungry. Although my mind wandered around thinking about all those delicious foods sometimes.
    I just had my lunch steak. I googled how to cook a nice steak and my steak today tasted delicious! I prepped the steak with soy sauce & pepper for extra flavor and grilled on hot pan until the outside turned brown & crusty. @sue is right, the insides should be juicy. So grilling for too long will make the insides dry.
    Tonights dinner will be ham. Thinking how to make it tasty somehow.
    @tella @porche @sue @myra we all started on the same day. Be strong girls!

  810. by tellaNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 3:59 pm

    Not looking forward for tonights dinner, I hate ham. Got myself some like it lean chicken “ham” so hopefully that’s okay. And I am also very thankfull that I have support here, for now it feels great to know I am not the only one who has to go through it! @ Deena, I also struggled with concentration today and have a slight headache. But I am very motivated! @ myra keep strong time will go by fast!

  811. by sueNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 4:02 pm

    @Nthato.. GO for it!!!
    @Deena – my copy of the diet does not allow for any other flavouring except salt… I thought I was cheating by adding a tiny bit of ceyanne pepper. I threw my salad into the pan when my steak was done – just for it to warm up and wilt.. was yum!!
    I am substituting the ham with chicken [dont eat ham] Going to steam chicken then quickly sear it in a hot pan like I did with the steak.
    Have drunk loads of water today– I think I had at least 3 litres… is this bad??
    I have had no hunger, cravings or dizziness. Hope it goes as well for the rest of this diet!!
    So yes Tella, Porche, Deena and Myra – lets be strong and see this diet through :)

  812. by sueNo Gravatar May 15th, 2012 6:25 pm

    supper done..I made a piece of chicken fillet .. steamed it slowly in a little water with salt, bit of herb, cayenne pepper and few drops of lemon juice. When it was cooked, seared it quickly in a very hot pan then returned it to pan with liquids.. soft, succulant, tasted good but really missed a side salad or something with it!
    Hope that having this chicken [instead of ham] is not going to mess things up!
    Was 72,8kg when I weighed myself yesterday morning.. will weigh again on Friday so will see if I messed up. Hope everyone else did great today!

  813. by MyraNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 5:59 am

    Hi all have a slight headache but suffer with constipation ,can I take something…. Love the ham it’s from France …..day 3 …. good luck @ Tella @ Porche @ Deena @ @Sue stay strong we can do it

  814. by tellaNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 7:20 am

    Morning girls! I must say didn’t feel to good yesterday, went to sleep with a big headache but all is good and gone this morning. @ Sue your supper sounded awesome I got chicken polony and it was okay but also missed my salad! I am on almost the same weight as you so will be interesting to see if we get the same results. @ myra I am sure you can use something. @ everyone does your version of the diet also allow you to eat cheese and carrots for lunch tomorrow[day 4]? And fruit salad and natural yogurt for supper? Sounds lekker!!

  815. by MyraNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 7:43 am

    Morning Tella yes looking forward to cheese and a fruitsalade.. Thank I will try and ge something for the constipation..good luck stay strong… My weight is 77kg on the 14 May on the start of the diete. Go go go to all of you

  816. by sueNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 10:13 am

    Good morning everyone! Everything good thus far.
    @Tella – really cool to have someone with similar weight to compare with.. will weigh myself again on friday morning, first thing.
    The chicken was gooood.. going to do same thing tonight and I’m going to toss my green salad into it at the end.. yum.
    For lunch I’m going to scramble together my salad, tomatoes and egg in bit of water with some salt and cayenne pepper :)
    My version of the diet also has cheese & carrots for lunch tomorrow – then fruit salad & yogart for supper.. I’m looking forward to everything except the natural yogart – I love yogart, but find it very difficult to have it unsweetened [my diet specifies no flavouring or sweetners] especially with fruit salad since it tends to be pretty sour :(
    Does anyone know if there are restrictions to the amount of cheese, carrots, fruit & yogart on tomorrows list?
    @Myra – I read somewhere that a cup of hot water with some lemon juice helps with headaches when on a diet..havent tried it though.
    Happy dieting everyone :)

  817. by sueNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 10:16 am

    ps – @Myra… 2 cups of hot green tea does it for me when I feel a bit constipated. I find Black Forest Tea also works but a bit too well… hope it helps you :)

  818. by MyraNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 1:20 pm

    Lunch for day 3 was more than sufficient for me ….next time only 1 egg… maby because I poached the eggs….@ Sue thanks for the advice … got some green tea will try it ….

  819. by bianca247 hoping to lose weightNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 1:33 pm

    well im on day 10 and i must say i feel so much different …my clothes are starting to sag…well the coffee in the morning i can not do …i have one sugar in the morning unfortunately..but i have still lost alot of weight…i was so upset with day 7 when they say eat whatever you like and didnt land up eating at all…just had a cup of tea…well i guess my body is changing…well done to everyone still going strong…tonite is Ham and salad not my fav but hey what to do….

  820. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 4:36 pm

    Day 3- somehow breakfast today made me feel a little full. Reallyy love the bread. As for lunch, I changed the boiled eggs into scramble eggs and mixed it with green beans. Hope it doesnt change anything..
    Today is a very tempting day for me as I went to my friend’s house and she baked a moist chocolate cake! Seeing my other friends swallowed that cake was very hard for me. I had to leave her house earlier before she could serve the main dishes that I know would be super delicious.. Man, this is hard but I have to be strong. 10 days to go!
    I weighed myself today and somehow disappointed as no reduction from my starting weight. Still, have to continue till the end. All the best everyone!!

  821. by CaramellaNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 6:03 pm

    Hey, this site has been the greatest inspiration of dieting sites I’ve ever read. I am a foodaholic – constantly nibbling, eating, chewing something. I have been fasting (water only fast and juice fasts) for 7days and the difference it makes is incredible. Last year I caught a bad fungus, due to superduper amounts of sugary sweets I eat (I am studying and working full time and need my sugary snacks to keep me going) and had to cut out all the sugar and starch and carbs by following candidas diet. Amazing, I have never been so light in my life. Unfortunately as fungus left, large amounts of chocolates and sweets were reintroduced and well the weight came back also, double and my metabolism slowed so badly, that I decided it needs a kick. My friends have done the Danish hospital one, and none of them actually managed to finish it after 3-4 days. So I am giving it a go myself and prove them its not that hard and it actually works (at least I hope).

  822. by CaramellaNo Gravatar May 16th, 2012 6:08 pm

    I started yesterday on 15th of May. My weight was 64,5kg and my height is 170cm. Most of my life I have been no more than 60kg, so this was a mega shock for me and I realised I need to take some action.

    So, it is my 2nd day and I don’t know how about you, but I can hardly finish the meal, it seems so filling and heavy. Specially yesterday I was still full from the eggs and then steak at night. And today, I am just craving for chewing and snacking, but I am actually full. Does that make any sense? Anyways, will see how it goes. BTW, how much of a lettuce and celery salad do you eat?

    All girls and boys lets stick together, its so much easier that way!

    Lots of luck – WE CAN DO IT!!!

  823. by tellaNo Gravatar May 17th, 2012 6:54 am

    Day 4! Morning everyone! I am so excited about today, because I love my fruit and tonight is fruit salad, yay!@ sue yes mine also says unsweetend yogurt, but hopefully the fruit will sweeten it a bit. @ Bianca, that’s awesome wish I was on day 10 yet, how much weight have you already lost?? @ Myra I also changed my supper a bit last night, i can’t stand ham so I sat down and thinked that ham is pork right? So I grilled very thin pork chop that has no fat on, I realy hope this won’t make a difference! @ Deena well done for not being tempted with the cake, I am not a sweet type of person but love salty things but a temptation is still a temptation lol, I am to scared to weigh myself, because at the moment I am very motivated and it would realy bring me down to see no change, even if it is still early days, think I will wait for sunday to see. @ caaramella welcome! You will see it helps a lot if you have a great support group like this one! Best of luck to all of you for today! Xxxx

  824. by sueNo Gravatar May 17th, 2012 6:57 am

    Hi Guys! Day 4!! All went smoothly yesterday… just felt a bit strange in the evening during supper … I felt a bit ‘out of it’ as the saying goes, but it only lasted for about an hour.
    The great thing is I’m now not running to the loo everytime I have a glass of water! Did anyone else experience this?
    I am going to have a Pro-vita instead of a slice of bread [mine went off :( ] Hope its okay to do this.
    For lunch, I’m going to bake an egg and a cup of carrots then sprinkle some mozzarella cheese over it and grill till cheese melts..YUM!!!
    I found a way around making the yogart sweeter.. bought some sweet grapes.. will blend it in to the yogart and then use as normal in my fruit salad.
    @Deena.. I know what you feel… I have to cook and serve all sorts of yummy stuff to my family but cannot partake.. you can imagine what it is like for me when I sit at the same table eating something different!
    Caramella, I think you have as much salad as it takes to make you full. I have no cravings as such, but feel neither full nor hungry.

    Woohoo guys..3 days behind us and a 4th day we gonna sail through!!

  825. by MyraNo Gravatar May 17th, 2012 7:30 am

    Morning yes day 4 …. I’m not doing the bread thing it’s a craker for me ….only going to weigh myself on the 27 May….. every morning ” trippel ” around the scale with temptation…good luck lovely day……to all

  826. by bianca247 hoping to lose weightNo Gravatar May 17th, 2012 11:40 am

    Well i am on day 11 and still going strong….@ Sue yes i also had to go to the loo 10 times a day as well as at night…it your body getting rid of water..i was wishing for cooked food last night so i took the ham and lettuce and braised it no oil or butter, it came out yummy…braised lettuce taste like spinach…hehehe…@ Sue i aslo cook my carrots and put cheese over and melt it in the microwave…it tastes divine…well fruit tonite not gonna eat the youghurt…it tastes vile…

  827. by PearlNo Gravatar May 17th, 2012 12:07 pm

    Hi
    Just discovered your website, have read as many comments as I could and really helpful and encouraging. I am on day 5 and so far I have lost 8 pounds. My starting weight was 12stone 8pounds and today I am 12stone. I dont feel very pretty but I shall battle on and hope to last the whole hog

  828. by CaramellaNo Gravatar May 17th, 2012 8:17 pm

    @ bianca247 well done, I must say I am rather jealous by being on day 3 only. But hey, 10 more days and I am done with that :)
    @ Pearl keep up the reading, its super motivating!
    Its strange – Im feeling absolutely fine and not hungry at all. And I read that this type of diet might distract you and it will be difficult to concentrate. If anything – it makes your brain sharp. Had my exam today and I am pretty positive about it. So fingers crossed my good mood will last the whole process :)

  829. by PearlNo Gravatar May 17th, 2012 9:24 pm

    @Caramella Thanks. I actually feel more encouraged and motivated by reading your message. It is good that the diet is not having any negative effects on you, with me I think its my age but I am slowly getting there. Keep going and good luck with the remaining days.

  830. by MyraNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 6:02 am

    Morning to all … Day 5 dit not weigh my self, but the mirror shows a difference ….I have losts some kg. .. this diete works for me…. Fish for lunch cannot wait, need to be strong over the weekend go girl go ….. To all the others good luck and stay positive ….

  831. by sueNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 6:50 am

    Good morning everyone! Day 5..!!
    Forgot to weigh myself as soon as I woke up – my after breakfast weight is 71.3 [down from 72.8] I have lost some but not as much as I was hoping. My clothes feel more comfortable on me though which I’m happy about. Maybe I need to make some time to squeeze in some exercises as well.
    @Tella – have you weighed yourself today? Love to know what you lost.
    So, onward and forward ladies and gentlemen.. we CAN do this!! :) :)

  832. by PorcheNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 8:07 am

    Good morning all. Day 5. My breakfast tasted like chocolate cake :) . I didnt enjoy the carrot and lemon mix, but i am still going strong @ Tella @ Porche @ Myra@ @Sue – we are so going to make it, so lets hang in there guys. I weighed myself on Wednesday evening, thanks to my sisters bathroom scale- i was curious – and i had lost 3kg’s! like seriously?!?!?!?!?! i know i shouldnt ahve weighed myself after such a short time but the scale was calling my name. i mean we work so hard, why not. I guess the carrots and lemon juice are worth it – DAY 5! Thank you guys, you rock – i couldnt have come this far without you. @Nthato, i guess you will trade your soups for lemon juice . lol. This blog will keep you going. i cant lie just last night i felt like sinkning my teeth into something decadent and topping it off with a glass of wine – then i thought of you guys and felt that i would be letting us all down – we in this together. @Diane, wow – congrats, you deserve all of it and more. Summer here i come. Guys, should we be going to gym? i havent? am i robbing myself of more pounds to shed? hmmmmm. Happy friday!

  833. by tellaNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 8:39 am

    Morning to all my diet friends! I am very glad we are on day 5 already!
    Had a nice zumba workout this morning, for I haven’t excersized as I should this week. But I am going to try to do it at least 4 times a week…

    Last nights fruit was awesome!! Will it matter that I don’t eat this morning? For I can’t seem to get carrots and lemon down on such a cold day!
    @ Sue, I am to scared to weigh myself lol! But will do so tomorrow morning and will let you know. @Porche I am also going to struggle this weekend, for I love my glass of red wine on the weekends!
    Oh before I forget, do any of you know if it is okay to swop meals like tomorrows chicken lunch for the eggs for dinner? We are going to family and I would rather eat my chicken for dinner instead of eggs lol.

    Have a awesome day everyone!! And good luck for the weekend! Xxx

  834. by sueNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 8:59 am

    @Tella.. wondered abt swopping too..
    Good thing I read your messages – I forgot the carrots and just had a cup of coffee for breakfast. Just had some carrots now… must admit I loved it.. tasted very fresh. I just squeezed half a fresh lemon into a cup of grated carrots.
    I am staying home as much as possible this weekend.. kids parties galore and too many temptations so hubby can deal with those this weekend!
    @Porche..3kg in 3 days..absolutely awesome :) So happy for you!!! I must look at what you are doing differently from me since I only lost 1,5kg in 4 days!!
    Anyway, what an inspiration and we gotta keep on going :)
    Have a wonderful day everybody!

  835. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 10:09 am

    Day 5- Morning everyone! Each day makes me more comfortable with this diet. I enjoyed last night’s fruits. I guess it was the best dinner in this whole menu plan. I weighed myself again and didnt see any improvement but today i get to poop after 4 days constipation and it felt so great. Thanks to all the fruits last night, it really helps with the digestion. Then I measured my waist and it has reduced by 2 inches!
    Congrats to @myra @porche @sue for great results after 5 days! Lets hope for more success with this diet.
    To all my diet pals, lets be strong! 8 days to go~

  836. by bianca247 hoping to lose weightNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 10:54 am

    Good Day to all…I am almost there…I just cant wait for my Steak tonite..I have been waiting all week…two more days then 13 days are over and i get to weigh myself…wish me luck guys…oooo i am so nervous…Stay positive guys…keep on keeping on…

  837. by PearlNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 3:09 pm

    I am on day six. Weighed myself this morning and did not lose any weight. I probably went OTT with the steak last night, I was starving !! @Deena I also enjoyed my fruit salad with yogurt on day 4, it was so refreshing and yummy. I enjoyed my chicken @ lunch it was nice cause I put a bit of garlic. @bianca247hoping to lose weight. Well done you, you are almost there and deserve a good result. BRAVA

  838. by daniNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 4:30 pm

    hi everyone
    can i gym while on this diet or is it not recommened?

  839. by KeshneNo Gravatar May 18th, 2012 9:31 pm

    Hi,
    Please recommend a substitute for steak and ham that would be as effective as i do not eat these for religious reasons. thanks

  840. by CaramellaNo Gravatar May 19th, 2012 7:51 am

    @Tella – you are allowed to swap around your dinner and lunch if needed. Also good luck with that dinner.
    I never knew how determined person I am. Well Friday was my first day back at work (I am a restaurant manager) and while I was gone, menu changed, so had to do a food and wine tasting yesterday.
    It was lovely to sit there and tell everybody how i am not feeling well enough just so I wouldn’t even have to TRY anything. What a shame – all these desserts and salads and oohh the wine, the sweet wine…
    @dani you can exercise, but obviously bear in mind you are consuming very small amount of calories and you might hurt yourself.
    Yesterday I went to do my usual circuit, power-plate and speed-walking exercise plan and well I failed big time. Circuit was too exhausting cause the weights were far too heavy for me. So I skipped that and did my vibrating plate instead. It felt good as most of the exercises are done on very short periods so it felt as I could probably even do more – thankfully I didn’t. And unfortunately my speed-walking turned into a lovely stroll along the riverside…
    Anyways, today I am in absolute agony, as every part of my body is screaming of uncomfort and pain.

    Btw, are you all following the diet above, which has the sweetener with coffee or the Danish one, with 1 sugar cube in the coffee? Would be interesting to know, which of these is actually working better…

    May my strength and willpower be with all of you!

  841. by NellyNo Gravatar May 19th, 2012 4:49 pm

    On day six having my half a chicken what a relief! Weighed on day 3 had lost 3kgs. Will weigh again day 8. I feel ok…doing the strict 13 day metabolism change it doesnt even have a ‘freewill dinner” lol.. on day 7. No cravings…challenges;-its hard to drink water on an empty stomach, steamed spinach yuk!,celery is a no no sub was cabbage, cheese no no sub was a 125g beef bite…Started out at 98kgs will keep you posted.Goodluck y’all.

  842. by CaramellaNo Gravatar May 20th, 2012 7:05 am

    @ Keshna – I have read lots about this type of diets and apparently the effect isnt the same if you are to replace some ingredients, but I think any other type of protein rich food will do. Chicken or fuller fish eg. salmon. Turkey and duck? Or if you don’t eat meat, then I know in one forum, one vegetarian lost weight by eating tofu instead (i dont approve tofu as a food because of its very chemical consistency). I mean, non of us knows why the diet really works and if it even does for all of us. Perhaps its just the mind trick for us to eat little but filling foods and therefore we lose weight…

    I have been allergic to eggs, since I cant remember (whole life) and have been avoiding them in cakes, desserts. I always get a bad reaction when consuming them in desserts, but voilaa, I decided not to replace them and I thought if I have a reaction, who cares, at least I will lose some weight and hopefully will get my metabolism to work bit faster.
    Guess what – no reaction. Nothing. Coincidence? Luck? Just the way my mind has been set?

    Anyways, if anybody finds out why this diet works and how, then I would be delighted to know. Until then, I just follow the plan – food by food (whether I like it or not) and just enjoy the results.

    Good luck, xx

  843. by CaramellaNo Gravatar May 20th, 2012 7:07 am

    I am so sorry, got really carried away there. That looks like it should’ve have been entered into my diary…

    Day 7- hi everyone! It’s half way to the end! I’m really happy today bcoz i weighed myself and i lost 3 kgs! My waist & hip diameters also down 4 inches. At last, I can buy a new pair of jeans. This diet works beyond my expectation. Hope to lose more 3 kg by this week.
    Love the fruits for today’s lunch. As for dinner, a sensible dinner? Hmmm..
    All the best everyone~

  848. by MonikaNo Gravatar May 20th, 2012 9:28 pm

    Hiii! i wanna try this 13 day diet, and i wanted to know if u could sleep all day long after having ur breakfast, lunch and dinner. like if i feel hungry, can i go to sleep, to kill my appetite ?

  849. by MyraNo Gravatar May 21st, 2012 7:40 am

    Morning on day 8.. weight myself and lost 5 kgs … love it love it….that motevated me even more… …this diete works if you follow it strictly….good luck to all the others

  850. by sueNo Gravatar May 21st, 2012 7:45 am

    Hi everyone! Day 8.. I am still standing on only 1,5kg loss :( But at least I lost something :(
    My diet allows for anything for supper on day 7 [so that body doesnt realise I'm dieting] so I had a seafood platter… I know its naughty since I went the whole hog, but I had only half the amount I usually do. I had dessert too which I shared with 2 people. Couldnt really eat the larger portions I normally eat.
    Back to a strict week from today.
    @Deena – well done!! Amazing how you suddenly dropped 3kg..maybe it was the ‘unblocking of the plumbing’ that did it :)
    I am now blocked up myself..and my usually failsafe 2 cups of hot green tea doesnt work :(
    Anyway, stay strong people and have an excellent [cheat free] week!!

  851. by tellaNo Gravatar May 21st, 2012 8:36 am

    Morning all my diet friends! Here is some motivation for the couple of you who are also on day 8 today… Last week this time we were on day 1, so we are over the most!!! Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was full of temptations and I resisted them all so I am so proud of myself! I tried to eat a healty dinner on my free meal, so had some nice braaied fish and oven roast veggies! @ Myra wow!! That’s amazing!
    @ Sue, I still haven’t had the guts to go on the scale lol. I am also blocked up and from thursday and my tummy are so bloated and hurts I tried everything and nothing works. So last night I drank some meds for it so hopefully that won’t harm the diet!! Hope it works!

    Worst of all I just got that time of the month so I really hope it doesn’t effect anything does anyone know?? Because I heard that you gain weight during that time??

  852. by priscillaNo Gravatar May 21st, 2012 9:26 am

    i need to know if its OK if i miss some of the meals on the diet so that i get better results, and if i eat amangoe for a fruit can i eat the whole mango?

    @ priscilla, I am not sure if that is okay, rather eat a little of everything, I only skipped 1 meal that was the carrots and lemon one morning. And I am sure mango is fine I got myself a fruit salad on that day that got a few different tipes of fruit in.

Blessings blessings! i am away on busines so lunch may be a challenge. i have prepared my meals – so hold thums for me all. LETS GO TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  856. by CaramellaNo Gravatar May 21st, 2012 6:25 pm

    @Nardo I think you are suppose to follow the diet strictly, without changing anything. Lots of coffee will affect the amount of water your body is able to absorb, therefore I recommend not to change anything, but if you are, then make sure you drink additional amounts of water to keep yourself hydrated to ensure the detoxicating process won’t stop.

  857. by LindeniNo Gravatar May 22nd, 2012 6:39 am

    Good Morning all

    I started this diet on the 13th of May and will finish this week Friday which is also my birthday , this is a very special one for me since the gift will be final results of my weight|(LOL), today is my day 10 and so far so good , i will continue maintaining even if i finish, a special thanks to a friendof mine(Loreta) for introducing me to this new way of living.

  858. by NardoNo Gravatar May 22nd, 2012 8:31 am

    thanks Caramella :)

  859. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar May 22nd, 2012 2:06 pm

    To Nardo: “can I drink black coffee between meals ??” – Yes, you can.
    I’m on day 3 today and lost 2kg200g. How exiting! I also make a little different diet and it works wonderful :)

  860. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar May 22nd, 2012 3:03 pm

    I saw, that in your diet you drink coffe or tee with sweetener (Sweet & Low or Equal ).
    I don’t think, it’s good. In my diet, very similar to yours, you can not eat any sweetener or chewing gum. Because of the insulin, I supporse. If you eat sweetener, the body thinks, it’s getting sugar and your insulin level rise. The consequence is: you get hungry. In my diet you can eat more, but drink or eat completly without sugar. Only fruits and carrots can give you something for your brain. It’s natural sugar and don’t rise your insulin and also transforms into the full energy. So, I would advise the people, who usually need sugar and eat much sweet not to use sweetener, but try to drink the coffe and tee without anythink. it helps very much not to get hungry fast. I’m somebody, who usually drinks coffe and tee with 2 spoons sugar and milk, mostly cappuchino or Latte. It’s hard for me too, but it really works. 2 days and two kg! And I’m not hungry at all!

  861. by MyraNo Gravatar May 23rd, 2012 6:11 am

    Morning all day 10 still going strong, only problem not going to toilet for number 2. Need to get some prune juice. Good luck to all stay strong and loose that an wanted kgs. @ Porche @Tella @ Sue @ Deena lovely day

  862. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 23rd, 2012 8:41 pm

    Day 10- hi everyone! I weighed myself today and lost another 1kg. I think it’s hard to lose any further. But i really glad i join this diet. I’m proud of myself that I can go up to this level. Love my flat stomach now. Been years since I get that. I’m currently searching on how to maintain my weight after finishing this diet.
    Cant wait after day 13! There r many foods that I cant wait to eat. Haha! Have to reduce my portion though.
    @Myra sorry to hear u have constipation problem. Maybe because of the lack of fibres in this diet. Tomorrow we r gonna have fruits. Hope that can help u =)
    Hang on there @myra @porche @tella @sue 3days to go!

  863. by KatiNo Gravatar May 24th, 2012 7:02 am

    Hello everyone… I started my diet yesterday with starting weight 80 kg…hope to lose 9…it’s my second day and I’ve lost2 kg…don’t feel hungry at all just a little bit sick)) …I did this diet one year ago but just for 6 days and lost 4 kg…hope to do all 13 days this time..and have a healty lifestyle after)) @ AnnaStern… Are u sure that u should have this diet without sugar…Mabye u should have some to get your blood sugar up for the day, just to keep u going for a while?

  866. by sueNo Gravatar May 24th, 2012 9:42 am

    Hi guys… have lost 2 kg thus far. Am very used to the portions etc. by now. Maybe would have lost more if I exercised too but just so busy! Am also struggling still with constipation. Have a very sweet taste in my mouth. Read up on it and it is apparantly a side-effect of ketosis [when your body breaks up fat] So I’m happy that the weight I am losing is actual fat and not water and muscle :)
    @myra @porche @tella @Deena… we’re almost there. Been so much much easier to do whilst holding hands with you :) 3 more days :)

  867. by tellaNo Gravatar May 24th, 2012 11:53 am

    Hi everyone!! Day 10! Only 3 days left! @ porche I am also looking forward to a nice glass of wine!!@ sue, also still have constipation hopefully tonights fruit will help.
    I can feel a big difference in my clothing everything is loose, my favorite black pants that used to fit like a glove is falling off!

    Still haven’t climbed on the scale will weigh myself on day 14.

    My version of the diet says I can only do it again in 2 years does anyone know if that’s true?? For I would like to do it again maybe in 6 months time?

    Enjoy the fruit tonight! Xxx

  868. by PearlNo Gravatar May 24th, 2012 7:55 pm

    @Lindeni like you, it is my last day tomorrow and it was my birthday yesterday. Will celebrate both finishing the diet and the birthday on Saturday. Wow! cannot believe that there is only three meals to go. I have been weighing myself and have lost nearly a stone. I have also done a great deal of walking since the weather has been so nice. This blog has been so helpful and encouraging.

  869. by KatiNo Gravatar May 25th, 2012 4:46 am

    So day 3… Good to think there is only 10days to go…weighted myself again this morning , another 0,5 kg so that’s 2,5 in total in two days wohoo…haven’t really felt hungry …but couldn’t fell asleep last night cause felt bit empty..I think I should exercise more and drink more water…I drink just a liter a day ;( …oh anyway will try do drink more today…how u guys going with your diet ,still strong? Ohhh I really hope we can all do the 13 days))) @ Pearl hope u having extra suprice number on your scale for your BDay))

  870. by AeyshaNo Gravatar May 25th, 2012 10:02 am

    I am on Day 6, and staying strong, my motivation for the week is that on DAy 7 I can eat something resasonable, maybe unreasonable, hehehehe.

    I have lost 4.5 kgs to date and cant wait to see what my end weight will be.

    I found that taking the diet one day at a time, like setting goals for the day and giving myself a pat on the back after everyday really worked. Setting small goals and achieving it , is better than long term goals and not achieving it and being disappointed>

    Good luck ladies, and heres to OUR MORE beautiful bodies! Cheers!

  871. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 7:15 am

    Hi Kati;

    in my diet I can eat to breakfast not one cracer, but whole wheat bread (as much as I want)! I toast a german whole wheat bread, around 70 to 100 gramm and eat it with coffee. The rest of diet is very similar to this one. But It’s not alowd to eat any sweetener either not a piece of chewing gum. I supporse-because of the sweetener inside. On days 1,5 and 7 I also don’t eat bread, but on day 5 carrots with lemon juice, day 1 only coffee or tea, day 7 tea with lemon.

  872. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 7:25 am

    @Kati @ Porche,
    Porche, have you in your diet also whole wheat bread to breakfast?
    The coffee is really terrible. I drink only one double espresso now, because I hate the taste. I dream about Latte!!!
    Kati: I supporse, the bread has a natural carbs and that’s why I can’t eat sweetener.

    Today I’m a little dissapointed: it’s the 6th day and the first one without loosing any gramms.
    :(
    Until today I lost exactly 2,5 kg. It’s good. And I hope to loose minimum another 2,5 kg until the end of this diet.
    Keep strong!

  873. by KatiNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 9:41 am

    Day 4 and still going strong…weighted myself today 3,5 kg gone..jeii..so happy…hope it’s going down like this the whole diet…@Annastern I think I’m starting to drink coffe without sugar now..I’ve been drinking it with sweetener so far…but next days I will try just plain coffee..forgot to eat my tomato last night so had it this morning with my bread…it tastes much better…hope it’s ok )))…good luck everyone…it’s worth it )))

  874. by KatiNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 9:46 am

    @Annastern don’t worry I’m sure you will lose more than 2,5 kg))

  875. by tellaNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 11:28 am

    Day 13! The last day for a lot of us. I have decided to weigh myself this morning for the first time since I started and I am proud to say that I lost 6.7kg! Almost 7 kg! I also took measurements and lost 10cm on my waist.

    I decided to do this again in a few months time, and from monday I am on a healthier eating plan.

    !

  876. by PearlNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 11:38 am

    Finished yesterday. Keep going guys, it gets easier with time. This is the first diet that has worked for me without having to buy a book or some magic potion. My breakfast this morning was a nice fresh fruit salad and will be going out for a meal later on. Will not indulge and wont be eating or looking at a steak for a long while. I have lost 13 pounds in total. @Kati thanks for your words of encouragement. Yes. my age number has gone up but my weight number has gone down and i feel young already. Good luck to you all. @ Annastern I had the same experience of not losing on other days and even putting on a quarter of a pound but the overall loss has been dramatic. Hang on in there, it is worth it.

  877. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 2:00 pm

    @Pearl
    Thanks for you advise! I hope it will be like you said.
    @Kati
    Thanks you too! What about your tomato: I read, the diet makes important the exactly combination of food. I don’t think, it’s tragic with your tomato, but don’t did it again. You have to eat the combinations and not mix the one food from breakfast with another one of the lunch.
    It’s what I think. May be I’m wrong…
    So, I wrote, that I’m on the 6th day. It’s wrong. I’m on the 7th. And on this day I didn’t loos any kgs. :( I hope, that I’ll loose them tomorrow, like Pearl said. But I cant beleave, that I can loose like Pearl – 13 pounds. I supporse only 10.
    See you all next days!

  878. by DeenaNo Gravatar May 26th, 2012 2:01 pm

    Day 13- hi everyone! Girls, i have miscounted the days. I thought tomorrow is gonna be the last day, until I saw @tella’s post. Haha! Wow I’m sooo happyy! I had the wrong meal b/w day 11 & 12 though. Hope that doesn’t change anything much.
    Cant wait to weigh myself again. Will do it tomorrow! Congrats @tella & @pearl! I am excited to do groceries shopping tomorrow. I will maintain a healthy lifestyle & eat small frequent meals. I’m proud of myself that I can finish this diet. Cant believe I’m actually doing this. Never I have thought I can reach my dream weight since 8 years. I will buy a new pair of jeans as a reward to my hardwork. =P
    @kati @Annastern @Aeysha stay strong!
    Thanks to @tella @sue @porche @myra @pearl for all supports!

  879. by MyraNo Gravatar May 28th, 2012 6:57 am

    Lost 5kg and 10cm the diet works …and you now I’m missing it. Thank to all for the support @tella@sue@porche@deena good luck God bless

  880. by sueNo Gravatar May 28th, 2012 9:40 am

    Hi guys.. finished the diet yesterday. Lost 4.3kgs. Was hoping to have lost more, but I’m glad for what I did lose though :) Congrats to everybody thats finished and keep going strong to all those that have started!
    My doc was horrified that I went on this diet and wanted me to stop [3 days short of end] I lied that I would, but finished it anyway. I have a thyroid condition and I was messing with it apparantly. Maybe thats why I didnt achieve dramatic results like some people. But hey, I feel sooooo much better in my clothes now and I’m going to stick to a healthier diet from now and keep the momentum going.
    @tella@porche@deena@myra@pearl@kati@annastern@lindeni@ayesha and everybody else on the diet, heres wishing you all the very best in your mission to acheiving and maintaining your weight loss goals. Be safe, be well and may you be blessed with the willpower to stay strong! :) :)

  883. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar May 28th, 2012 12:54 pm

    @Margaret
    I also wanted first to eat cottage cheese with carrots, but after all, I dicided to take Emental, like the others and melt it over cooked and grated carrots (with garlic and sold). I too usual cooked/smoked ham (honey ham).
    @Nthato
    Good luck! :)
    I’m on day 9. Starting weight was 63,1kg, Fat 27,2%.

  884. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 28th, 2012 1:17 pm

  888. by jozeyNo Gravatar May 29th, 2012 10:41 am

    hi.. i’m on day Two of this dieet and lost 2kg.. feel great…

  889. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 29th, 2012 11:29 am

    Jozey really??????? now you are pulling our legs…. How possible is it that on day 2 that you loose 2kg??? share the secrete…lol!!

    Can someone please answer me if cheddar ok in the place of mozarella…………….please people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  890. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 29th, 2012 11:31 am

    Lindeni from what I understand, If you had followed it to the letter , it sasafe to re-start it in a month or 2………

  891. by sueNo Gravatar May 29th, 2012 9:18 pm

    @ Nthato, I think you should stick to mozarella – cheddar & gouda are much higher in fat content and would also carry higher calories. Look for a low fat cheese if you cant find mozarella… or use feta or cottage cheese. Good Luck!!

  892. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 30th, 2012 8:33 am

    Good morning and thanx for the response to that, now I just need to get mozarella…..

  893. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 30th, 2012 8:34 am

    thanx Sue….

  894. by sueNo Gravatar May 30th, 2012 9:48 am

    @Nthato You are most welcome :) Remember also that Mozarella too comes in low fat… try to make it a habit from now on to use only low fat cheese and only small amounts of it. All dark yellow and orange cheeses have a lot of colouring – but that does not mean light yellow doesnt have any. . . it just has less colouring.
    Good luck all you brave people – keep strong!

  895. by esteNo Gravatar May 30th, 2012 1:14 pm

    hi all ive started the diet yesterday just unsure of what type of ham do one have and also the type of cheese

    hi everyone

    can anyone tell me if i can take a sleeping tablet at night to help me sleep,or will it affect the diet?

  898. by NthatoNo Gravatar May 31st, 2012 11:53 am

    Hi guyz…

    I am now on day 4 now and going strong…. I am following everything to the letter…. Though I must say I am a little bit shy to climb the scale… I think the only time i’ll do that is next week when I am done…

    Cheersa guyz, lets keep strong….

    What vitamin supplements should I take to avoid fatigue when embarking on the Metabolism Diet?

  900. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar June 1st, 2012 11:13 am

    I’m on my last day 13 and lost only 3,5kg. Of course, I was disappointed to see it, but I feel really better and thinner and I’ll repeat the diet after two Month for 7 days. In my first two days I lost 2 kg! May be, if I do the diet every two-three month until I reach 54kg, what I want. I only hope, not to get weight after diet. Tomorrow I’ll see the complete lost weight…

  902. by danieleNo Gravatar June 2nd, 2012 6:35 pm

    hi there
    instead of boiled eggs can i make an omlete or will it affect the diet?

  903. by AnnaSternNo Gravatar June 3rd, 2012 7:07 am

    @daniele
    If you make an omelette without milk and oil, only from two eggs with salt and pepper, then yes.
    Yesterday was my first day without diet.
    I started with 63,1kg and ended with 59,3kg. Not really much, but I tried to loose weight since two years and never did more then one kg. Something wrong with me…
    Also my personal trainer doesn’t know, what to do.
    That’s why I’m happy to have lost 3,8 kg. Better then nothing.
    Good luck to everybody!

  904. by danieleNo Gravatar June 3rd, 2012 2:23 pm

  914. by funiNo Gravatar June 11th, 2012 12:30 pm

    Hi All,

    Will it be okay for one to have cup a soup?

  915. by PrueNo Gravatar June 12th, 2012 5:53 pm

    I am sure if u want soup uncan have it. No one will stop u but the diet needs to be followed strictly. Like me , I just had popcorn and I have my coffee whenever I feel like it, with fat free milk. I also had samp with stew. M gon have eggs with carrots- I wonder what is the thinking behind eggs n carrots. Haaaaaai. I still lost some weight, I m on day 6.

  916. by LindyNo Gravatar June 13th, 2012 7:49 am

    HI

    I started this diet last week Monday which was the 4th of June 2012. Today I am on day 10 and I am left with four days to complete the diet.

    So far I have lost 4kilos hopefully i will lose another 2 kilos by the end of the diet.

    which will make it 6 kilos, but i am going to start the diet again in two weeks.

    I am happy with what i have lost so far but yo! the first week was tough i thought i wasn’t gonna make it but i did.

    Good Luck

  917. by funiNo Gravatar June 13th, 2012 1:01 pm

    Hi All, i started the diet on monday the 11th june. 2day im on day 3 and have lost 3kilos. so far so good…

  918. by LindyNo Gravatar June 14th, 2012 11:34 am

    DAY 11

    I am rather sick of this food, but I only have 3 more days to go.

    So far I have lost 4.6 kilos hopefully i will lose 1.4 kilos more by the end of the diet .

  919. by PrueNo Gravatar June 14th, 2012 8:50 pm

    I am on day 8 and lost about 4.5kg And don’t really stick to da diet. I had samp, stew, potatoes . I have my coffee with fat free milk. I even had toasted bacon n egg. Can’t really stick to da diet, m breastfeeding. Maybe in 8to 12 months time I will really follow it strictly. I gained 20kg on my pregnancy n lost 5 then picked up 7-8kg.

  920. by lindyNo Gravatar June 15th, 2012 7:31 am

    So far i have 4.8 kilos doesnt look like Im gonna reach my target of 6 kilos but im cool i will try again in two weeks time. I’m happy with what i have lost. 5 kilos lost is better than 5 kilos gained.

    cheers

    Today I’m on day 9, It wasn’t easy. Weighed myself on Day 5 and had lost 2.5. That’s a lot, I have 4 more days to go. I will hit the scale on the last day.

    Wow, all I can say is that its a good kickstart afterwhich you need to continue eating healthy

    1. vegetable and meat have to be organic?
    2. I have never bought ham before, what type do I buy?
    3. Also what type of cheese do I have to buy?
    4. Tea, can we drink any type of Tea?
    Can someone please assist with some answers.

  951. by SephieNo Gravatar July 17th, 2012 8:08 pm

    Oh gosh…you peeps are getting me excited. Congratulations to those who finished successfully.

    So a friend recommended this diet to me and I weighed myself prior to starting it. I want 10kgs off. Currently completing day 2 and boy has it been hard. The afternoons are the worst and I find myself quite tired so I nap a bit. The water does help and I have one of my closest pals acting as a coach of some sort so here’s to me pushing on for the next 11 days. Good luck to everyone.

  952. by KTNo Gravatar July 18th, 2012 8:29 am

    Hello all, this is my second time on the diet, it worked well the first time, but due to stress and life’s day to day things i gained weight again, my own fault, cause i’m a stress eater . .
    I have started with day one today . . good luck to all

  953. by mizetNo Gravatar July 18th, 2012 8:51 am

  954. by SephieNo Gravatar July 18th, 2012 2:37 pm

    day 3…oh man, the afternoons are killing me. But hanging in there.

  955. by PennyNo Gravatar July 19th, 2012 4:17 pm

    End of day 4. This has been the worst day so far.

  956. by SephieNo Gravatar July 21st, 2012 6:51 am

    Day 6…feeling so much better. Have not weighed myself but wore some clothes that have become very loose. Friends complimented me, so it boosted my courage. I went a bit crazy on day 5 and did not eat lunch because I really really hate fish so ended up on water and waited for supper. Hope that does not mess me up.

  957. by HRH DarlingNo Gravatar July 23rd, 2012 10:39 am

    Hi all,

    I’m on day 2 of the 13 day diet. I’m also on Duromine 30mgh. I need to lose about 30kg. I have been putting it off for too long,waiting for some miracle potion that was gonna take away the weight while I sleep. Alas, I have discovered this miracle potion just doesnt exist. I would start a diet and leave it in a week. I didn’t eat too much…I just ONLY ate the wrong food. I would go for days on biscuits and choc and ice tea.I thought since they are small, they wouldn’t be too bad.
    Well, I now weigh a whooping 90.3kgs and I’m a size 16. This is very depressing to me and has taken away my bubbly personalities as I do not want to be looked at.
    Yesterday was ok, I had a cup of green tea during the day too. I do hope this won’t mess with the diet. Today, I drank a cup of warm water and lemon before starting my day. I also skipped rope for about 15mins. I hear that is a very effective cardio exercise. I intend to increase my skipping time when I can…actually, I think I’ll skip morning and evening.
    Please let me know if I can continue with the warm water&lemon in the early morning routine and a cup of green tea during the day while on this diet. I understand I shouldn’t take anything that’s not on the diet…but those are good choices aren’t they? Or will they stop the diet from effectively altering my metabolism? I would like to lose maximum kgs on this diet so I can be motivated to continue with my weight loss.
    Jennifer Hudson lost A LOT of weight, I can also do it!!!
    I will try not to weight myself til I’m done with the diet.

  958. by SephieNo Gravatar July 23rd, 2012 2:03 pm

    Day 8…5kgs gone so far. I’m feeling ok but getting tempted to stop…lol

  959. by HRH DarlingNo Gravatar July 24th, 2012 8:25 am

    Day 3 …
    Got home and skipped rope, did some crunches and squats for about an hour…my whole body hurts sooo much. I guess its to be expected. I never did anything physical. My colleague says it will get better after 3 days. I do hope so.
    I had 3 cold, ugly slices of ham followed with green tea last night. That was NOT nice. The thought that I will have to continue with such ugliness for possibly another year til this weight is off is very disturbing. However, the thought of getting to my 30th and struggling to find a dress I wanna show off is traumatising. So, I’ll stick it out.
    I managed to skip to 100 today. Other days I’ve been doing 5 sets of 50. Its sounds like sooo much, bbut its actually very little-barely 5mins of skipping when you put it together. I need to be skipping for an hour a day…
    This morning I did 5 sets of 100. I’ll try do the same later on…gradually increasing to 10mins of solid skipping. I weighed myself today…I have only lost 0.4…
    I’m disappointed that its so little. I thought the more you weighed the more you could lose.
    I will not give up though, I’ll get there.
    I also took the stairs to the 3rd floor before catching the lift to the 7th floor when I got to work…I was slightly out of breath. Next time it will be better.
    Already had my warm water and lemon then had my black coffee, no sugar and whole wheat bread. I pray God sees my dedication and sends angels of fat suckers to help me along.
    Happy day WINNERS!

  960. by HRH DarlingNo Gravatar July 25th, 2012 8:28 am

    Day 4
    Didn’t skip last night. My friend called me and we sat on the fone for houurrss. Anyway, I enjoyed my salad with the ham all cut up in it. I was so down yesterday. Dreamt of cupcakes and chocolates-yes, I know I should be dreaming cabbage and such eeckiness.
    My whole body hurts guys,like soooo much. I took the stairs about 2more times yesterday at work (only to the 3rd floor)
    This morning I skipped to 500. I think I should get proper circuit shoes cos the jumping is sorta hurting my knees too fast. I’ll get some this weekend.
    I hate the scale and have avoided it since yesterday.
    Today, I had a wholewheat roll with my coffee instead. I hope that’s ok. If this diet doesn’t work, I wanna know its not because I messed it up…then maybe move onto the cabbage soup diet…(perhaps I’ll lose more than 0.4 with that one)
    I’m looking forward to fruit salad and yoghurt tonight (that sounds very sad)
    My friend on seeing my lunch of green beans and tomatoes and eggs yesterday was like ‘Woman, what are you (NOT) eating?In the whole world right now there’s so much that you’re not eating.Theres meat and veg,fish and poultry’
    I laughed so much. I like that my friends are supportive without patronizing me.
    Here’s to yet another day.
    I do wish the Dieting Delilah did address some of the concerns I posted…like about the green tea and lemon water…or has she lost faith in the diet. ;) (i laf – i laf ladies)

  961. by JudesNo Gravatar July 25th, 2012 12:34 pm

    I’m starting tommorow with the 13 dayz coffee diet, so looking forward to it, it’s my first time, hope it all goes well. Good luck to everyone. : )

  962. by SephieNo Gravatar July 25th, 2012 1:20 pm

    Day 10. I am seriously tempted to stop now that I am nearly at the end. My afternoon headaches are the worst things so I end up napping. Mornings are great and fresh, evenings are fine but afternoons….
    Anyways, 3 days to go and good luck to those who have just started

  963. by HRH DarlingNo Gravatar July 26th, 2012 7:49 am

    Day 5
    Heya me :)
    Updating this post daily helps keep me on track somehow. I used the stairs at work all day yesterday. I also spoke to a trainer who promised to help me lose 2-3kgs a month…I think I can achieve that by myself. I’ll see at the end of this diet how much I have lost. I skipped like the devil was after me last night-probaly 1000 and again 500 this morning. I think my rope(which I got from a toyshop) is not very effective. I need to get a heavier rope if I want results.
    I made my own fruit salad yesterday…so I enjoyed my supper.
    Breakfast today (carrots,lemon and tea) is just WEIRD. Like, who comes up with these combinations?ooweeee. I got on the scale, my weight loss is something I do not wanna write down right now as I am still trying to console myself. It will work out…soon. There is no way that I could be giving in so much and get nothing back. Regardless of what the scale says, I will keep to my routine.
    I think today is one of those down days…well,probably cos of the dreaded scale. I really should put it away for a while.
    I can’t wait for lunch, I’m gonna go to a niiiice restaurant for my fish and tomato :) :):)
    Happy day errbodyy

  964. by thandsNo Gravatar July 26th, 2012 12:46 pm

    two questions
    1. can i substisute teh ham and the white fish with anything? if yes what

  965. by WendeNo Gravatar July 26th, 2012 2:22 pm

    Hi All,

    I have started this 13 day diet on Monday, so I am currently on day 4. I weighed myself lastnight and so far I have lost 3kg’s in 3 days (i’m hoping today is another 1kg although 3 a day would be great… lol)

    The diet I am following is slightly different to the one mentioned on this blog, but it’s working like a bomb. I noticed that a lot of people lose about 1.8 in 3 days, so I think the one I am on works a little faster.

    None the less, this blog has encouraged me to continue because today my hands started shaking like you cannot believe, so I assumed it was due to a lack of sugar and my first thought was to go out and buy a chocolate – the better part of me however convinced the weaker part of me that I’ve worked hard to lose these 3kilos just to put it all back on in a moment of weakness.

    I had my lunch today (carrots and mozarella cheese; as much as i wanted) and I’m not hungry, but I must admit that I look forward to my dinner (fruit salad and yoghurt).

    Here are a few notes or tips.

    My day 1 I had 2 cups of coffee for breakfast (no milk or sugar) which worked really quickly as a duretic – before lunch i was running to the bathroom all the time.
    For lunch i had 2 boiled eggs and instead of boiled spinach I got myself a bag of baby spinach leaves and at it just like that with some salt and pepper – (note: maybe add some lemon juice, i’m going to try that on my day 8 – because it became a bit too much to swallow)
    For dinner I had grilled steak with just salt and pepper – I prepared 2 really big pieces of steak (one for dinner and one for the next day’s lunch) it was terribly dry because it was so thick – i had to cook it longer so it cooks through. – I have now gone to buy much thinner pieces of steak so that it’s an easier swallow. – LOSS 1 KILO

    Day 2 – Breakfast – coffee and wholewheat bread (as much as i want) – not too bad
    Lunch- steak and green salad (lettuce & cucumber only) – I cut the steak up into the veggies so that it’s a beef salad – wasn’t bad at all.
    Dinner – Ham – I just had it cold and it was terrible… LOSS 1 KILO

    Day 3 – Breakfast – coffee and wholewheat bread (as much as i want) – not too bad
    Lunch – 2 boiled eggs, tomato and greenbeans – this was the worst for me so far! not sure how to make it better (perhaps I’ll warm my greenbeans next week)
    Dinner – Ham with green salad (lettuce and cucumber) – made a salad and cut the ham into it… (i warmed the ham so it wasn’t as bad as day 2′s ham) – LOSS 1 KILO

    Day 4 – Breakfast – Breakfast – coffee and wholewheat bread (as much as i want) – not too bad
    Lunch – Carrots and mozarella cheese (as much as I want) – it was yummylishico… the best meal so far.
    Dinner – (which I am looking forward to is fruit salad and yoghurt)

    Today was a day temptation nearly got the best of me but I WILL stay focused. I have a lot to lose.
    Despite the shaking and stuff today, I can feel how I’m losing… I can’t explain, but I have this tingling in my body and maybe it’s all in my head, but that must be the calories burning… hahaha

    Anyway – HRH DARLING – i see you are losing very slowly, perhaps its because you are drinking lemon water and green tea. I have read that you have to stick to the diet as strictly as possible. you cannot swop coffee for tea or have green tea after dinner. Drink your coffee when it says coffe and tea when it says tea and for the rest of the day if you are thirsty just drink plain water minimum 2 litres per day. (even with your dinner) – I am 6 kilos heavier than you, and I am not exercising at all right now, and I can see it working for me.
    I encourage you to do it as is… no substitutes and no additions… You can do it!

  966. by mysNo Gravatar July 27th, 2012 12:13 pm

    Hi, I’m starting the 13 day diet tomorrow. Very nervous as ALL other diets didn’t work for me. Just so affraid of getting at the end of day 13 and see I haven’t lost anything… But I’m gonna try to stay positive and read this blog each day for moral support!

  967. by WendeNo Gravatar July 27th, 2012 1:17 pm

    @Mys – a little tip (which I didn’t have) If you start on a sunday then you only have one miserable weekend…
    This WILL work for you… like you I had very little success with other diets… I’ve tried it all – this is the first one I’ve lost so much in less than a week. Stick to it TO THE T and you will have success, i promise.

  968. by JoNo Gravatar July 27th, 2012 2:18 pm

    Thank you so much for this diet. It definitely works! I am on day 12 today and lost 7kg. Would like to lose another 10kg. Can I start all over on Monday again? I am afraid to eat “normal” and don’t know what a “maintenance diet” would look like to get to my goal weight. Thank you for this website, surely helps to motivate all on this diet.

  969. by SephieNo Gravatar July 27th, 2012 2:44 pm

    Day 12: 7-8kgs gone so far. My target was 10 kgs off but ah well, I am just happy with this. Feeling good and thankful. I am sorely tempted to break it but having one day to go…lemme stick till the end.

  970. by JoNo Gravatar July 27th, 2012 2:50 pm

    Hi Sephie. I felt the same yesterday. So tempted to stop and then I read this: “Difficulties increase the nearer we get to the goal”. We have come this far, so what’s another day? Stay strong!

  971. by HRH DarlingNo Gravatar July 27th, 2012 2:52 pm

    Hi Wende…
    Perhaps you are right. Its so depressing that I’m putting all this extra effort and getting nothing…ok…so now do i start over or just continue minus the green tea and lemon water?
    I’m on day 6 and so (not)motivated.
    I joined Curves today…then read dozens of reviews of how non-effective it is.Apparently you only burn about 237calories in the 30mins…twas expensive and I can’t even back out now. Anyway, it will be good to have a full body workout added to my skipping. I’ll continue skipping cos that surely burns more calories.
    I didn’t take no stairs today…I was too down to even bother.
    I realise that I should be the last to ‘not be bothered’ about stuff relating to weight loss, but I gave myself a break.I had a small grilled breast for lunch…I decided to make all my portions smaller. I hope that isn’t disturbing this intricate NASA science this diet is supposed to be doing.
    I’m thinking after this, I’ll take a day or two off dieting (still taking little calories) and do the Beyonce cayenne pepper cleanse then get onto weighless. This is definately gonna take fighting from all sides and right now, I’m more determined than ever.

  972. by HRH DarlingNo Gravatar July 27th, 2012 6:33 pm

    @Sephie & Jo congratulations ladies!!!I soooo wish to lose some too.I don’t seem to be losing anything…I’m not done yet though…so it will work!!#KCCO

  973. by SephieNo Gravatar July 28th, 2012 7:00 am

    Day 13…FINALLY!!!!
    @Jo: so true. I was thinking that since I was basically at the end, one little bite could not hurt but then I just drank more water.
    @HRH Darling: I don’t know how to help you with that. One thing I do know is that I did not weigh myself each day, coz I knew I would be discouraged. I had promised not to weigh myself till the end but then gave in and weighed myself on day 8 and got a nice surprise. Plus I think there is some strictness to this diet but heaven knows how I have broken some of the rules(I despise fish and skipped eating it…just drank water) but if this isn’t the diet for you, then find another. Just don’t try to be on two diets at once and do not overtax your body.

  974. by SephieNo Gravatar July 28th, 2012 10:16 pm

    Well, as of now, I am officially done/completed. Thanks for the support and the diet. Now I can attack my bowl of cereal that has been tempting me for the past few hours…lol. Wishing the best to the rest who attempt this diet.

  975. by KashyaNo Gravatar July 30th, 2012 10:53 am

    hi there – is this diet 7 or 13 days? and you say i can drink as much coffee as i want – without sugar?

  976. by ShazNo Gravatar July 30th, 2012 1:55 pm

    Hi,
    Bongiwe and I started the diet yesterday and I found it so difficult, but with the help of my loving hubby and his support he encouraged me to carry on. Keeping in touch with Bongiwe and finding out what the diet is doing for her also helps then you don’t feel so alone.. I am on day two today and find that I am having headaches but not too bad… I am not feeling hungry, I just wanna start load shedding already…
    Will keep everyone posted on my progress…

  977. by Setha;-)No Gravatar July 31st, 2012 9:12 am

    Hi Guys,

    I started the diet on Sunday the 29th

    Starting weight:62,9kg

    I am terrified of weighing myself, so I only to only do so after I complete the diet.

    My biggest problem was going 2 the “T” so I hope this diet really works.

    All the best 2 every1. Let’s kick so FAT ass!! :-)

  978. by Setha;-)No Gravatar July 31st, 2012 9:18 am

    So I’m on day 3 now and going strong. I wanted to know if I’m doin anything wrong by adding onion 2 my tomatoe salad.The cheese thing as well. Which cheese is the right one 2 eat?. This diet has so many variations and I sometimes feel lost with the choice differences. Please help!!

  979. by Setha;-)No Gravatar July 31st, 2012 4:09 pm

    Hi Nancy,
    Thank you so much for the response. Where has everyone else gone?? :-(
    When someone has a chance to respond please also advise on adding onion.
    Keep it going yall..Im so looking forward to my fruit salad tonight.Happy for days.

    Hi, ladies started my diet today . I am really praying to keep going. It looks tough thou. I really need support as I am very huge. If I can only loose the maximum this diet can offer, I will be the happiest lady ,

  981. by WendeNo Gravatar August 1st, 2012 10:01 am

    Hi Setha, if you want a copy of my variation I can mail it to you… just post your email address. I have been losing nicely, and I can see the centimeter loss as well.
    With regard to the onion. It does say that you can use onion, salt, pepper and lemon juice, so you can add the onion to anything. I have for the first time on Monday tried onion with my steak it was divine… I grilled the steak in the bauer pan (no oil) and when it browns, i add a drop of water to soak up the brown… I then put the onions in the pan as well to brown with the steak… (with salt and pepper) – it tasted so good…
    Ok so the cheese I’ve used is mozarella and Tussers. I think the healthier the cheese the better it might work, but because it doesn’t specify I assume that one could use any kind.

    Hi Lulu – stick to it to the T as if your life depended on it and you will definitely see the difference – it really does work… the second week is better than the first, so if you make it through the first week you are halfway there!

  982. by mmNo Gravatar August 1st, 2012 10:12 am

    Started this diet on Monday- it’s Tuesday and I’ve already eaten my lunch and it’s only eleven!
    Also missing wine frantically. May just have to accept my fatness finally, resign myself to it, give in, give up and let myself go completely, wallow in self-gratification and perpetual hedonistic pleasure.
    Or then again, I could just starve till six and eat two eggs and bloody spinach again.
    What to do what to do???

  983. by Setha;-)No Gravatar August 1st, 2012 11:01 am

    Hi Wende,

    Thank u so much for the tips. My e-mail addy is boi2melu@yahoo.com.
    I am on day four – having my carrots and emantel cheese i think its called. I am starving like crazy today, have no clue why.
    I have stuck to the diet to the T and going strong. Lemon juice i presume from natural lemon cause most diets dont want a bo Lecol.
    I cant feel any weigh loss or see any change. I plan on breaking my initial surprise when the 13days are over and will check on day 8.

    Lulu and mm all the best, I will keep routing for you guys. Wende u r a *!

    Keep on keep keeping on everyone.

  984. by mmNo Gravatar August 1st, 2012 11:27 am

    Thanks Wende.
    Black coffee here I come…

  985. by kagisoNo Gravatar August 1st, 2012 3:22 pm

    @MM.

    Wait till 6 and have the stupid eggs. Never accept your fatness, it is not urs in the 1st place. You will regret not sticking it out till the end. IF you choose to cheat, have a green salad or a bunch of apples or grapes, just dont have cake n stuff like that. Im cheering on you. And if you have already cheated, that is still cool. go for a run

  986. by kagisoNo Gravatar August 1st, 2012 3:33 pm

    Here is Kagiso here again. I am alone for the enxt 2 weeks so i started a new diet today and i remembered this site, so i decided to just start a metabolic diet tomoro. But because i have read a whole lot on diets and metabolism i will probably twick it a little. But will try and stick it out for the 2 weeks.

    Tomorrow will be my day 1 and i will update you as i go. Will probably weigh myself everyday since i love my scale ;)

  987. by Setha;-)No Gravatar August 2nd, 2012 2:44 am

    Hey Kagi n erbody,

    I’m on day 5 of the diet. Not looking 4wrd 2 breakfast-carrots and lemon juice, but totally looking 4wrd 2 fish n tomato salad.I will actually boil my fish instead of grill it, I’m tired of dry food. I hope this is ok.

    This diet is tough, but I’m not giving up!!!

  988. by LuluNo Gravatar August 2nd, 2012 4:40 am

    Hi, me again, guys my first day went well. Thanks for the support. Although by six in the evening last night I was feeling very irritated. Felt my body was already feeling the change. Let’s keep going . I will stick to it. Hooray!

  989. by Setha;-)No Gravatar August 2nd, 2012 9:40 am

    I Just had my day 5 breakfast yall, The worst ever. but the end price is worth it i hope. Still havent weighed myself. Does anyone know if boiling the fish is ok or if i strictly need to grill it. for lunch that is. Thanx.

  990. by Setha;-)No Gravatar August 2nd, 2012 7:19 pm

    I just had my day 5 supper- I marinated my 1 minute steaks with salt,mustard, worcestershire sauce, italian herbs, pepper n salt. The steak went down so well. A pleasant meal 2 seal off a hard day @ work. 2moro is yet another day 2 conquer n burn FAT..

    Day 6 almost done, supper looks bleak but I’m still in it. I don’t think iv lost anything, my clothes fit the same and I don’t feel any lighter. So sad :-(

  994. by LuluNo Gravatar August 4th, 2012 8:12 am

    Day 4 of my diet. Not feeling as if I lost anything. Yesterday had a terrible day at work. One of the chaps that abuses authority had a nice bad , bad surprise for me. Terrible on a Friday. Destructive criticism almost broke my ego. Guess what? when I got home had to deal with my habits of comfort eating . I started fantasing on a slab of chocolate. Almost very irritable had to chew the leaves( You know what I mean) and cooked ham. Said a little prayer, bath and Slept. Said …… But guess what darlings this site keeps me going. I am trying real hard. I need to leave now and go to the gym , a little bit of cardio and swimming will do. Please guys keep on chating. I need your support. Please….

  1000. by Setha;-)No Gravatar August 6th, 2012 9:05 pm

    Hi Lovelies,

    Welcome to the new entrants. All the best 4 u on ur journey. Keep strong. This diet really works if u stick to it.

    Lulu hun, I had a. Mozarella,ham,lettuce, cucumber and tomatoe sandwich using whole wheat bread . Because thy actually say u can eat anything, even outside of the diet. I chose 2only use a few ingredients outside the diet, so I used steers sauce and mayo 2 give the sandwich a huge saucy booster. It went down so well I tell you. I opted not 2 go to the extreme as it is easy 2 fall off the wagon.

    I’m on day 9 going 2 10 and happy th@ I’m almost done..

  1001. by WendeNo Gravatar August 7th, 2012 12:34 pm

    Hi Ladies and Gents (if there are any…)

    Okay so I haven’t been on here in a while. I finished my 13 days on Saturday and I’ve lost a total of 7 kg’s in the 13 days. Not what I wanted – but it was that time of the month and usually bloat – so I’m blaming that… lol

    On a serious note though, I think I’ve done pretty well. I am very serious about my weight loss now and I have been doing some real in depth research regarding weight loss.
    Based on my research I am developing an eating programme that is going to be very specific to individual needs. We all know that one size doesn’t fit all. So it focuses on your weight, height and what you want your goal weight to be. I will then work out a how many calories you have to consume per day. I will even go as far as how much you could potentially lose per week. As you can see

    If anyone is interested in this programme email me on wende@eatright.edu.tc

    Lets do this thing together!

  1002. by Setha;-)No Gravatar August 7th, 2012 2:16 pm

    U lost 7kg… Wow. I think I’m stuck, nothing is happening since my last weigh and th( was day 7. I’m on day 10 now and will be done on Friday.. Happy days.. Btw how muuch is ur weight now? So proud of u, uv done really well.

  1003. by LuluNo Gravatar August 7th, 2012 5:18 pm

    Hi again, tonight I am eating whatever I feel like. It’s day 7 hooray! Setha thanks for the idea. I am still confused and scared to over do it. But definitely . I will have a cup of hot chocolate. It’s very chilli tonight. Wende congrats on ur weigh loss. You have done very well.

  1004. by NenesNo Gravatar August 8th, 2012 2:15 pm

    Hi ladies

  1006. by LuluNo Gravatar August 12th, 2012 4:57 pm

    Day 11 only lost 4 and a lot of cms . Funny I am craving my rusks and coffee. But I will not cheat. Perhaps another cuppa black coffee and lots of water will do. Hooray. Can wait to finish this diet. I am not feeling like stake and salads anymore! Lord have mercy on me. Where’s every one. Are you guys done with the diet??!??

    Hi @ Zen you can have 10 cups or more but no sugar or milk

  1019. by BiancaNo Gravatar August 20th, 2012 3:14 pm

    Hi All,

    I am on day 8 and have lost a total of 3kgs but cm as well. After reading the above comments I just realized that on day 7 I could have had anything for dinner! Nooooooo! I thought I had to have anything from the Dinner options, so I had steak…again! Dam! But anyway my diet is still going strong although I feel very weak and so tired :-( only 5 more days to go.

    All the best to everyone still on the diet.

  1020. by MyraNo Gravatar August 21st, 2012 7:43 am

    Good Morning,

    Good luck to everybody

  1025. by AngieNo Gravatar August 27th, 2012 10:00 am

    Hi there. Did this diet a while back. Just wanted to let you guys know that a good after diet to follow is the Dukan diet – eat as much as you want as long as its on the list

  1026. by StormNo Gravatar August 27th, 2012 11:31 am

    ok, that must have been the worst lunch I’ve every had …. by far …. eggs with Spinach – not good. Sjoe over and done

  1027. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar August 27th, 2012 12:56 pm

    With you on that one Storm – also day one for me. I bought baby spinach which was slightly better tasting than english. Sweated in some water and then added my chopped up boiled egg like a salad – but not a salad – a salad acually has taste.

  1028. by PhathuNo Gravatar August 27th, 2012 2:27 pm

    Im on my 6th day and i do feel hungry at times but am too disciplined and stubborn to quit. Yesterday i made lunch for a friend and i just had a boiled fish(200g) for lunch. I felt strong for not craving her lunch :) .
    Not ready to weigh myself yet, think I will only weigh myself after day 13th.
    I read your comments and i see myself getting that far. Thanks!

  1029. by SLIMGALNo Gravatar August 28th, 2012 5:22 am

    I am on day two today and so encouraged to continue. i hope to loose all babay fat and some more.

  1030. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar August 28th, 2012 8:42 am

    Day two – scoffed my bread up was so good! Any diet that gives the go ahead for bread is good in my books. hahaha. Enjoyed my steak last night. Marinated in salt reduced soy sauce,sweetner and chilli flakes. Was very good. Did the same for today’s lunch and added lettuce and ribboned cucumber. Got 2 bananas and 2 apples. Not so much look forwarding to all the ham. :(

  1031. by GeeNo Gravatar August 28th, 2012 8:20 pm

    Hi all, all i can say is wow!!! You guys rock, think i am going to start on Sunday… Never really stuck to anything properly… but after reading almost everything this seems great! i am 1.47m tall…. or short…lol and i weigh 76kgs. I tried to quit smoking and gained 12kgs in 3months… #sad face and started smoking again! gggggrrrrr!

    Its going to be my 29th birthday soon! i think it would be a great gift to give myself… shed the kgs!

    @everyone!! you inspire me!

  1032. by SLIMGALNo Gravatar August 29th, 2012 5:57 am

    @ Storm – isnt the fruit salad tomorrow night? It should be ham and salad tonight.
    Ate my ham last night – blegh. Loved my bread this morning. Just battling to get the water down. On my first 500ml still.
    Not looking forward to lunch as don’t like green beans or tomato – so made a salad and going to drown it in soya sauce mixture. I have already made my ham salad for tonight. Gosh could do with a bit of colour. Down 3kg so far so happy. Will be jumping for joy if can loose another 2 before day 7.

    @Angelique I think I might be on a different version of the diet. Please mail me your diet tjhandyman111@gmail.com

  1037. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar August 30th, 2012 9:29 am

    Ham salad went down very hard last night. But down another kg so happy. One more to reach my wish of 5 kg.

  1038. by GeeNo Gravatar August 30th, 2012 1:11 pm

    Hi all, Me again… still trying to get my mind right before this diet. i have read almost every site possible. Some people are saying very bad things about this…. but my point of view is if we can get fast foods and not think twice about all the junk we put into our mouths then this surely cant be that bad! so to all the haters of this diet… if you not here to motivate others don’t post on the site.
    Well done to all that have finished and good luck to all who have started !
    I will be starting on Sunday…. i do hope to persevere… as i am a mini quitter…. hahahahahhah! well when it comes to diets!
    You all have a super day!

  1039. by StormNo Gravatar August 30th, 2012 4:00 pm

    Day 4 : just had my fruit salad ….

  1040. by StormNo Gravatar August 31st, 2012 6:44 am

    Good Morning
    Day 1: starting weight 77kg (headache)
    Day 2: 76kg (headache)
    Day 3: 75kg (constipation and headache)
    Day 4: 75.5 kg (wonderful day no headache !!!)
    Day 5 : 74kg (3kg’s down) I enjoyed the carrot with lemon juice for breakfast. Today is the best food of the diet. Its the weekend YEPIE – why is it always so difficult to stick to a diet over the weekend???

  1041. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar August 31st, 2012 9:16 am

    Carrots are going down very slowly this morning. Think its a mind thing. Carrots for breakfast? Weight the same. Had milk in my coffee last night though. Had a school concert to go and gave out coffee. Was desperate for something warm so thought how much can it hurt. Really battling with constipation, was hoping the fruit would help.

  1042. by EstherNo Gravatar August 31st, 2012 1:50 pm

    Hi, just wondering if I could take any multi-vitamins (pills) during the diet?? and how much Lettuce and Cerery can i eat?? Many Thanks

  1043. by AngeliqueNo Gravatar August 31st, 2012 2:29 pm

    Hi there Esther

    I take my multi vitamins during the diet. Depending on which version you follow, its either unlimited or they say the quanity.

  1044. by SLIMGALNo Gravatar August 31st, 2012 3:48 pm

    day five today, not yet weighted and i dont feel the difference, but i will keep on. hope for a surprise on day 7. fingers crossed and not i have meat………its boring and still feel very full after the boiled fish during lunch.

  1045. by SLIMGALNo Gravatar September 1st, 2012 7:45 am

  1046. by EstherNo Gravatar September 1st, 2012 10:00 am

    Thank You Angelique, you are a sweetheart!!

    I am going to take the diet for 14 days!! I got a lot to lose!! I have used a protein diet before and lost 3kg, but the weight all comes back within a week after my normal food intake!! quite disappointing thought…hopefully this diet can help. I will follow it strickly!!!

  1047. by TshepisoNo Gravatar September 1st, 2012 3:41 pm

    Hie guys, I am back and on day one. I finished the diet sometime in March this year, I am doing it again though. I have gained but not much, i just want to loose more.

  1048. by GeeNo Gravatar September 2nd, 2012 8:45 pm

    Hi All, Today is my Day one. I have roped my fiance into doing the diet with me.
    It went pretty well!
    Starting weight 74.6…

    @SLIMGALN- well done with those jeans!!!!

    I did drink coffee this afternoon as well… but not sugar or milk!

  1049. by StormNo Gravatar September 3rd, 2012 8:37 am

    I weighed myself this morning and the scale said 73.7… from 74.6… in one day… pretty unbelievable.

    I really need to take pill for my head… and i read somewhere here that you cant… is that true?? cause i do suffer from headaches…

  1051. by EstherNo Gravatar September 3rd, 2012 11:32 am

    I have seen that there is another metabolism diet plan for 13 days, is this the same thing? I wonder if this diet plan suitable for asian? Please dont laught at me about this, as I did try a diet that given by my Kiwi friend, she lost 5kg, but I gain 1kg after that. -_- sigh….

  1052. by TshepisoNo Gravatar September 3rd, 2012 11:44 am

    Hie Gee

    Just drink water for your headache. You are going to have them for a while. The last time I did the diet, I had the headaches for a week or more but I dint take anything for them. I just convinced myself its the body detoxing.

  1053. by GeeNo Gravatar September 3rd, 2012 1:02 pm

    Hi Tshepiso…. its turned into a big one… cant see straight ahhahaha!!! so i did it… i had to, i have drank already 2lt of water and nothing…. so 4 hours later… i took some pills!

  1054. by sweetloveNo Gravatar September 3rd, 2012 1:59 pm

I’m happy to read that some of you can no longer fit in your skirt suits (SLIMGAL)I cant wait to wake up one day and wear my trouser/skirt only to find they are big :-o !!!! I’ll weigh myself on day 7 (can’t wait)

  1061. by StormNo Gravatar September 4th, 2012 8:36 am

    Day 9 for me and feeling great …….. I had 4 slices of toast for breakfast (it says have as much as you want) where I normally only have 1 or 2 slices.
    @sweetlove – the spinach also made me feel nauseous yesterday
    Today is the best day of the diet yummy fruit and steak and salad !!!
    Good luck to everybody

    Hi ladies

    Im on day 3.
    Im 5 foot 2 and starting weight was 59kg. My goal is 50kg.
    I have been on diets for 26 years.

    Im finding the diet quite tough, missing chocolate and missing being able to snack in between meals. But Im going to hang in there as Im desperate to lose some weight.
    My best meal is breakast, loving the wholewheat toast.
    Taking this one meal at a time.

  1064. by sweetloveNo Gravatar September 4th, 2012 12:45 pm

    hi all,
    is it possible to drink cola zero or zero cal sodas of any kind?

  1069. by SLIMGALNo Gravatar September 5th, 2012 6:07 am

    ooh Meisie i am a sinner :) i have cheated enough times. i have eaten some ovacado and a sweet banana in between the diet.
    i am however in day 10 today, my diet said a dry toast but i have taken two pieces( i am a bread addict and trying to fight it)

    i am glad for the progress so far, my hubby cannot stop admiring my tummy( not yet very flat but he can tell the difference)

    3 more days to go then i can repeat after 3 months( becouse i was not very faithful with this one) hope it will be fine

    all the beginners hang in there the end justifies it.

  1070. by GeeNo Gravatar September 5th, 2012 8:25 am

    Good Morning all! Day 4! yayay!

    Thanks Meisie for the rules… the diet i have says you can use a small amount of olive oil. oops!

    The Fruit salad last night when down like a dream!! Whooop!
    I have not cheated yet… and i hope not to!

    @sweetlove i think that we do have diff diets! perhaps on the next one i am going to try the one above! So far i am 1.8kgs down in 3 days! its all good and my better half is 3kgs down! ag these men loose weight to fast!!! grrrrrr!
    Other than that i had a headache the entire day yesterday… took a mini nap when i got home still nothing so again i took some meds!! 10hours with a headache… not the one!

    XOXOXO to all keep at it!!

  1071. by sweetloveNo Gravatar September 5th, 2012 9:10 am

    Top of the morning y’all!!!!

    Its day 3 for me…..i was almost quitting yesterday :-( was too hungry and also the headache was too much!!! BUt i got through it :-)

    It seems like we all have different diets, coz mine is totally diff from the one posted here, but its the end result that matters right??….right!

    A quick one for y’all. How is your bowel movement?? I think the last time I did a ‘number 2′ was a while back. Is it only me or some of you felt abit constipated while on this diet?? :-(

  1072. by GeeNo Gravatar September 5th, 2012 11:41 am

    @ sweetlove… YAY for not quitting!!! :) its hard and these headaches are a real pain!! lol excuse the punn!
    Yes i also had a bit of a stomach problem… its strange cause we are eating good stuff! but after the fruit you will be right as rain!
    I did however consider taking some laxatives if nothing happened… so if you don’t go by tomorrow maybe consider something natural!

    Whoop whooop!!

    Today i feel less hungry today! yayay! otherwise all is well:) Keep at it sweet love… lets get to 7 days @ least!!

  1073. by NellaNo Gravatar September 5th, 2012 1:03 pm

  1074. by MassNo Gravatar September 5th, 2012 1:57 pm

    Hi everyone, my friend and i will be starting the diet on the 9th, we have a ladies get-together on the 8th so we figured let’s get that out of the way first … lol …, lost 10kgs last year just by exercising (gym) and watching what i ate and have been able to keep most of it off … lol …, however i’ve been stuck (cancelled my gym membership and kinda ate what i wanted while controlling my portions) so will be using the diet to jumpstart my weight loss again , really looking forwad to it, will be joining the gym again on friday, i’m in this for the long run. Reading your posts has given me so much inspiration, hope to keep up with updating you guys about my progress :)

  1075. by DeegeeNo Gravatar September 6th, 2012 2:03 pm

    Hi. I started today weighing 83.4, hoping to kickstart a loss of total 23kg. I had coffee with sugar :-( same diet different version), but i am continuing with this one.

  1076. by DeegeeNo Gravatar September 6th, 2012 2:04 pm

    Day1: 83.4kg

  1077. by NellaNo Gravatar September 6th, 2012 2:12 pm

  1079. by sweetloveNo Gravatar September 6th, 2012 2:31 pm

    I’m on day 4….haven’t weighed myself yet, plan to weigh myself on day 7…hope i wont be disappointed.

    To all who are starting or planning to start…it ain’t easy….but its worth it :-) so keep the faith and get back into that sexxy shape you’ve pictured in your head ;-) lol

  1080. by JacksNo Gravatar September 6th, 2012 3:09 pm

    @Gee – last night was fruit salad and yogurt, best dinner so far :)

    Im on day 5 and today is hell, having terrible cravings for sugar and so hungry, not looking forward to steak and salad tonight. But Ill plough on.
    Will only weigh myself on Sunday.

    This is one of the hardest diets Ive been on, and Ive been on many :) Just hope I see big results.

  1081. by GeeNo Gravatar September 6th, 2012 8:07 pm

    To all who have started good Luck… 1 day @ a time and 1 meal at a time!!
    @sweet love this is hard… so bored of the food!

    @jacks!! the fruit salad and yoghurt was truly a treat!!! i lapped it up like you have no idea!! so sweet so nice YUM YUM!!
    I am soooo over the green salad you have no idea!! hahaha!! instead of steak i had it minced and put it on some lettuce to pretend it was a Taco… hahahahha!!! um that did not work! lol!

    I did weigh myself this morning and i am another 900gms down… so it works..

    but shoooweee this is hard… one day @ a time!

    I need to think of something that i can do after this diet as i fear the weight will find me again… there are sooo many diets on the net and in books… but i don’t know… cause to be honest i would love to be able to eat everything in moderation.
    Because the amount of food that i am eating now is very little even though the diet states as much as you want….

  1082. by NellaNo Gravatar September 7th, 2012 7:53 am

    I was on day 2 yesterday and had black coffee with my ham,will the coffee i had hamper the diet? I know coffe is for breakfast but needed something warm to drink in this cold.

    Should i start again on Day 1,or quite..??

  1083. by GeeNo Gravatar September 7th, 2012 1:24 pm

    @nella… hi doll… i drink coffee also in the evenings and sometimes at lunch… because water is rather boring and when its cold… coffee is best.
    So if i am messing up oh well… 3kgs down anyway! keep at it!
    i think as long as you eat things that are with in this diet you should be fine.

  1084. by JacksNo Gravatar September 7th, 2012 2:34 pm

    I gained weight, how is this possible?
    This food on this diet is probably a quarter of what I usually eat.
    Im on day 6 and Ive gained 200 grams ???
    So frustrated.

    What does everyone have for the free meal on night 7? can you go overboard and binge on various things?

  1085. by MeisieNo Gravatar September 7th, 2012 4:33 pm

    Almost done with day 6. Eish am tempted my pals are off to a Friday Drink; A glass of red……..mmmmm; am eating boiled eggs and carotts tonite, jah neh !! a slab of fruit & nut chocolate?! I need to survive this weekend am almost done.

    A great weekend y’all.

  1086. by abiNo Gravatar September 9th, 2012 8:42 am

    ii am on my 5th day of diet buts its a different version and yesterday i vomited dinner :/ is that a bad thing? does it stop this diet from working?

  1087. by HlatseNo Gravatar September 9th, 2012 10:22 pm

    Hi ladies…

    Im feeling so encouraged and inspired by the success stories. Im gonna start tomoro!!!! wish me luck :) ill keep everyone posted with the results…!

  1088. by SLIMGALNo Gravatar September 10th, 2012 8:38 am

    i thought i would do 13 but stopped at 10. not sure why i have not weighed even now! i guess the comfort of fitting in old clothes gives me so much joy how many Kgs i have lost is no longer an issue.

    i am off for now, God willing on December i will start again but on the different version.

    all the best to everyone.

  1089. by IllonaNo Gravatar September 10th, 2012 9:14 am

    I started with the 13 day diet on Friday (7th Sept) together with my sister, which is a bit different from the diet initially posted right at the top. We are in our 4th day. Was soooooo disappointed on the 3rd day. I weighed myself (which i shouldn’t have done) and did not loose any weight. But when I put on my clothes this morning for work, I could feel it’s not as tight. I feel a bit more inspired now. Guess we just have to keep going. I also experienced headaches and stomach discomfort though. Thanks for everybody’s responses. It’s really motivating.

  1090. by REENo Gravatar September 10th, 2012 11:36 am

    Hi all,

    I have started my plan today with my cuz…I have support!…so far ….so good. Reading all the success stories has really got me motivated! I am not going to give up….going to miss bread though. I think my current weight is 100kgs plus…havent weighed in a while as it always depresses me! i have got to do this…i really dont like the way I look…will be back to update on my progress and to read all the success stories….good luck to everyone…stay strong!

  1091. by JVJNo Gravatar September 10th, 2012 12:41 pm

    Have tried this diet once before, and with cheating and exercise in my first week, still managed to lose 4kg’s.

    Have started it again this morning, with the support of my cousin following it also…we’re going to do this….together!!! Yay!!!

    I have 12kg’s more to get to my goal weight, but losing another 9kg’s even will do for me!!! I just need the motivation. We’ll both keep you all posted…the consistent motivation helps!!!

  1092. by JacksNo Gravatar September 10th, 2012 1:44 pm

    Im on day 9, craving sugar. Hope I make it through the week.
    The fact that I havent lost any weight is very frustrating.

  1093. by REENo Gravatar September 11th, 2012 8:01 am

    300g lighter and really excited!

  1094. by JVJNo Gravatar September 11th, 2012 8:23 am

    Well done REE!!!! woooooohooooooo!!!! Keep on keeping on!

  1095. by DeegeeNo Gravatar September 11th, 2012 12:08 pm

    I had to restart yesterday, i had a very bad weekend – foodwise. I weighed myself this morning i had droppped 700g. not bad for a day :-)

  1097. by JacksNo Gravatar September 11th, 2012 2:04 pm

  1098. by REENo Gravatar September 11th, 2012 3:17 pm

  1099. by REENo Gravatar September 12th, 2012 8:47 am

    Weighed in this morning and was delighted to find out that I have have lost 1.6kg since starting this diet on Monday! Thanks for all the motivation JVJ….

  1100. by SLIMGALNo Gravatar September 12th, 2012 8:48 am

    So Sorryj Jacks. I have not heard of theZero weight but maybe you can try some other versions of the diet. And i can button all my coats now. feels soo good.

  1101. by EstherNo Gravatar September 12th, 2012 10:28 am

    Thank you all for sharing your stories with the diet. I am so motivated to start tomorrow. Hopefully I can kick at least 10KG off!! I will keep you guys posted for the result. Just one question: are we allowed for execise at all?? Cheers gals!!

  1102. by DeegeeNo Gravatar September 12th, 2012 11:29 am

    day1 – 83.4kg
    day2 – 82.7kg
    day3 – 82kg
    Total loss(1.4kg in 2 days).

  1103. by JVJNo Gravatar September 12th, 2012 12:12 pm

    Both my cousin and I are on day 3, keeping each other strong. The support and motivation doing it with someone really keeps you going through those tough times, as you don’t want to disappoint each other, or yourself. I would definitely suggest you do the same.

    I didn’t see a change in weight after day 1, and after day 2 an increase of 500g. So not fair!!! I did drink a great deal of water yesterday though, over 3 litres, so I’m attributing it to water, in addition to ovulating soon, which is when I retain water too!!!

    My scale may not be saying much, but my clothes fit better already, and I feel lighter….better than the post carb coma I get into. Its a refreshing change.

    Encouragingly, my cousin has lost 1.6kgs already in just 2 days of being on this diet….that motivation is keeping me going!!! We’re doing this together!!! Sexy REE 2012, here we come!!!

  1104. by MeisieNo Gravatar September 12th, 2012 9:06 pm

    I am on day 11, I have not lost instead gained 4kgs. I think the protein love me. Jack we are in this together Babie. Do I have to wait for two yrs before I try again? Am so frustrated right now!! GOOD NIGHT.

  1105. by KLKNo Gravatar September 12th, 2012 9:28 pm

    I am starting my 13 day diet tomorrow and am very encouraged by your testimonies of weight loss… I have tried dozens of diets, diet pills etc and always manage to loose weight… Then I find it again… I am in the gym 4 to 5 days a week – can you gym on this diet?

  1106. by KLKNo Gravatar September 13th, 2012 9:07 am

    Ok here goes…. Day 1 – having my black coffee, finished my 1hr high intensity session.
    I really hope this works!

  1107. by JacksNo Gravatar September 13th, 2012 10:38 am

    Hi @Meisie
    I am on day 12. I have also gained weight. I have not cheated, and on some days I even do cardio 2x a day. I am one of those unlucky people that literally has to starve before I lose even a few hundred grams.
    I finish tomorrow, taking the weekend off then starting a very low calorie diet on Monday again, going to eat just enough to stay alive and see if that works. FRUSTRATED!!!!
    I have 10 kg to lose :(

  1108. by JVJNo Gravatar September 13th, 2012 11:08 am

    Hi Esther and KLK,

    I think you can and SHOULD exercise with this diet, as exercise is critical in increasing your metabolism…that means the results of this diet should be enhanced if you combine both.

    Just be weary though that the change in diet may affect your energy levels initally, as you will not be accustomed to so few carbs, and the increase in protein.

    Overall though, just based on personal experience only, after a few days on the diet, you do feel a renewed sense of energy and lightness as your body gets used to the low level of carbs, and looks at better sources for energy.

    Jumped on the scale this morning, after 3 days, I did manage to lose 1kg at least!! So motivated for now!!! Need to see another drop tomorrow!!!

  1109. by MeisieNo Gravatar September 13th, 2012 12:04 pm

    Day 12 today!!!

    @Jack, eish this is not for me. I am going to do the 3days diet, I did that before and managed to loose. I will see Sept off. Am starting in October, for now, from Sat, I will be thinking food and eating. Am just so frustrated!!

    Good Luck to y”all

  1110. by DeegeeNo Gravatar September 13th, 2012 12:15 pm

    day1 – 83.4kg
    day2 – 82.7kg
    day3 – 82kg

    Hey Folks, one last evening meal and it is done, with nothing to show.

    A great weekend!!

    All the best !

  1114. by JacksNo Gravatar September 14th, 2012 2:00 pm

    @Meisie I know how you feel. Today is my last day and Ive also lost nothing.

  1115. by KLKNo Gravatar September 14th, 2012 3:01 pm

    WoW amazed at the results already… weighed myself yesterday before I started, I was 94.7 and when I weighed myself this morning I was 93.1 which equates to a 1.6kg drop already!!
    I hope it continues, at this rate I’ll loose my first 10kgs by the end of the 13 days…
    Really sorry for Jacks and Meisie… We are all different and what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for the next, I’ve tried many diets and failed… I’ve lost and gained more times than I can count… so keep trying, hope you get your desired results :)

  1116. by KLKNo Gravatar September 15th, 2012 6:02 pm

    Day 3 over!!! Yeah… Total loss 2.5kgs :D

  1117. by EstherNo Gravatar September 16th, 2012 2:43 am

    Hi all…and @JVJ, Thanks for sharing…today is my day 4. I weighted myself before the diet-66.9kg. and decided to weight again after finishing the diet. finger crossed…I hope this diet works for me…All the best for all of us!!! and have a great weekend….

  1118. by KikiNo Gravatar September 16th, 2012 12:14 pm

    Hi all! Happy to start today, weight today 62.7kg. I used to train and eat healty until i started my own business. After a year I gained 8kg from no exercise ans late nights work work work, therefore craved carbs like crazy, now pay the price. Would like to give it a try… Love this site as it seems to be very supportive! Good luck to all of us

  1119. by KikiNo Gravatar September 17th, 2012 5:28 am

    Yesterday was different to normal eating days! As breakfast are always the BEST for me, I am a coffee addict and kind of missed it yesterday! I felt a bit drowsy & watched movies, but went to gym the evening and did only 30min cardio and circuit. Enjoyed the steak last night, but missed the taste of basting.
    This morning I woke up at 5h and ate 4 slices of bread with no butter, I know it will be a loong stretch until lunchtime. I am very confident and see I weight 61.7 this morning. I am realistic and know it is because the amount I ate yesterday.

    All the best…there anyone who started yesterday?

  1120. by NellaNo Gravatar September 17th, 2012 6:39 am

    Got a cold,so had to stop,but starting tomorrow again i need a nother version to this diet,i dont like the spinach

  1121. by EstherNo Gravatar September 17th, 2012 8:14 am

    Day 5 today…very hungry and tired…I couldnt get my head straight today at work….I had half cup of black coffee at the morning break and another half black coffee at noon. Not sure if this is ok to have…but i was so tired, and really need them to boost the energy. After dinner, I had a cup of herbel tea without milk and sugar. I hope i didnt ruin the diet.

  1122. by CHANINENo Gravatar September 17th, 2012 12:14 pm

    DAY 2! Lost 1kg from yesterday… im 56 and want to loose 6kg. I was 50kg in the beginning of the year… Hope I will make it… Atleast I have a friend whos doing it with me… We said we will not gym in this time because I know I will be hungryer and tired… =) Cant wait to see the results…

  1123. by CHANINENo Gravatar September 17th, 2012 12:20 pm

    Nella I will email it to you ? Just send me a mail jeanine11111@gmail.com
    Esther you cant cheat or change the diet att all… not even chewing gum…

  1124. by KLKNo Gravatar September 17th, 2012 4:33 pm

    Weight loss total on day 5 is 3.2kgs… Not gonna weigh again now until day 8…
    At Esther, there are different versions to this diet I found one before I found this page and although they are similar mine says as much BLACK coffee or tea as u like through the day, but NO sugar so I’ve been having like 3 cups of black coffee with no sugar or sweetner and I’m still loosing… but I guess it depends on the version you are following? Anyway I’m happy with my results so far!!!

  1125. by KikiNo Gravatar September 18th, 2012 4:28 am

    Hi All
    Yesterday was day 2, was ok, had ham last night and felt terrible afterwards – as I have a cold, and WATER RETENTION from the ham, is that possible – the large amount of salt in ham?!Omw, my hands r swolen!
    I never buy ham, maybe this was a salty shock to my body, whaaa my hands feel like marshmallows!

    I was at the dr yesterday and had some medicine as well, as I have a fever. My fiance insisted that i drink medicaion so I did at the end of argueing!
    I am also not going to weigh again, as I am scared it will be demotivating to weigh with water retention, My diet version, is the eat as much as you like on certain meals. I only have coffee with w/wheat bread in the morning and just water the rest of the day with luch and dinner. I miss coffee!

    Very positive, wont be able to train, untill I feel better and even with drinking medicine, i WILL continue this diet.

  1126. by CHANINENo Gravatar September 18th, 2012 6:18 am

    Day 3. – lost .3 from yesterday! And 1.3 since day 1! Feeling very hungry! But i will not quit!

  1127. by KLKNo Gravatar September 18th, 2012 10:10 am

    Hi All…

    It has been a mission not to get on that scale this morning but I must hold out….
    At Kiki… not sure about the ham and water retention, did your doc not say what it could be?
    I don’t know if I could go a whole day on one cup of coffee (bad, I know) but I’m a busy girl and coffee is my adrenalin… Would never make the early gym sessions and work through the day without it… And I’m still loosing so it can’t be bad…. I think though that since its without milk or sugar its basically water (mud water) lol… It doesn’t have any calories… But I make sure to get my water in as well, the diet says you must…. Shame really hope you feel better.
    At Chanine… The hunger usually gets better around day 4/5 I’m on 6 today and feeling good.

    Has anyone got the version where you can have as much black coffee and tea as you like (without sugar or sweetener)?

  1128. by KikiNo Gravatar September 19th, 2012 5:11 am

    Day 4: Still sick, went to bed early (21h00) last night
    Hi KLK, this is a personal thing where I try to drink only one cup as I used to drink between 8- 15 cups(with milk and sweetners, the past year, when I only had between 3-5 hours sleep.
    I agree with u, it will not do harm without milk.

    I am not hungry as I do not starve myself. If they say eat as much as you want, I do, till I am satisfied, with out feeling stuffed! Just not looking forward to Saturday morning for the lemon tea for breakfast!
    I have not weighed yet, but body wise I feel better (sizewise) Still scepticle to have lost fat yet, as I think the best is to see it at the end.

    What do they mean with a reasonable meal, the one night in the diet on day 7? I will keep it clean, but what, any suggestions?

    Seems like it is only 3 of us on this diet at the moment? But KLK, you are further than me, right…today is DAY 7 for you! Whoo whoo half way! Well done!

    Well< I am off to my yummy dry toasti and sweetended black coffee..hope after this diet I will be able to continue with black coffee!

  1129. by CHANINENo Gravatar September 19th, 2012 5:57 am

    DAY 4 – still the same on the scale!!! I feel terrible about it and yes! The scale is my best friend lol! Think I must go running tonight… Maybe it will help! Still hungry… I gym allot so im huse to eating 6 times a day! But I believe you when you say it will get better thanks KLK!

    My diet is only cofee in the morning! And hate coffee so its ok for me… lol!
    Cant wait for my fruit and yogurt tonight! Going to have a BIG bowl!!!! hehe!!!

    Congrats on the weight loss guys! xxx

  1130. by DominiqueNo Gravatar September 19th, 2012 1:56 pm

    Day 1 of this new found diet.
    Starting weight 62kgs

    Fingers crossed!!!

  1131. by CorrieNo Gravatar September 19th, 2012 1:59 pm

    Hi guys.
    Day 6:Got the same diet as Kiki, and I also take advantage of the eat as much as u like part. Been having the worst headaches since starting the diet, but I have lost about 4.5kg so far. I just hope that grandpa’s don’t count as cheating …. :) I think the more overweight u are, the more u loose. Really going to try and finish the 13 days. Good luck to all *-*

  1132. by DominiqueNo Gravatar September 19th, 2012 4:12 pm

    I’m really confused, am i allowed to drink black tea instead of the black coffee. There are various posts which say that one can use either and other posts that say no substitutions for black coffee. Not a fan of black coffee but love black tea…..if i have to, i will have the black coffee but I’d love to be able to have my tea if at all possible.

    If i am allowed to have the black tea, can I have it throughout the day or only for breakfast? there is also a post that mentions that sweeteners can be used, so is it ok to use Canderel? All your post are absolutely awesome! So inspired!!! :)

  1133. by CHANINENo Gravatar September 20th, 2012 5:33 am

    DAY 5! I didnt weigh myself this morning, but my clothes are falling off! Yea baby!!! 8 days to go!!!!

    Strongs on the diet Dominique! =) Dont have a clue on the tea! Maybe the rest will… hehe

  1134. by KikiNo Gravatar September 20th, 2012 6:15 am

    DAY %5:Ohh yeah looking forward to carrots and lemon for breakfast! Think I will sprinkle a bit of sweetner on the lemon!
    Loved the salad & yogurt last night and enjoys cattots and cheddar cheese for lunch, I have to say, i lOVE this diet! Had a small black coffee in the afternoon with a client. And LOTS of water afterwards.

    I am going through my montly cycle, therefore will be strong to only weight next week. I feel good, clothes are not falling off yet, as I still wear my tight clothes from previous size(gained 8kg since January) blush :)

    Well girls, have fun it is all worth it, 2 weeks is nothing! Come on, lets losse those suckers!!

  1135. by DominiqueNo Gravatar September 20th, 2012 8:12 am

    Wow Chanine, thats awesome. sounds like you’re doing really well!!!

    Day2, just had my black coffee :( …..and yummy rye bread :) i put half a Canderel in the coffee (hope thats ok), had to coz yesterday’s black coffee with no sweetener made me gag.

  1136. by ChanineNo Gravatar September 20th, 2012 9:11 am

    I use 2 sweetners… and I have 2 coffee’s every morning… Day 5 not so bad! I had a HUGE bowl of fruit and yogurt last night! Think it helped!!! hehe!

  1137. by KLKNo Gravatar September 20th, 2012 9:55 am

    Hi All…

    My weight loss is now at 4.4kgs I’m not gonna weigh again till the end

    Hi Kiki I start again now at day 1 but effectively its day 8 for me today… for my “free” meal last night I had grilled steak and gem squash with some salt and pepper nothing else. I get the not being able to sleep from too much coffee but I try to stop after 7… It doesn’t always work :D

    What I did find hard was skipping the breakfast and then I think on my day 3 I’m allowed as much W/W bread as I like (like Dominique, I have rye) 2 slices is all I can have but then you go back to no breakfast just your coffee or tea… so today I’m feeling really hungry and decided not to go to gym this morning because I get real hungry after a good work out.

    At Dominique my version of the diet says as much black tea or coffee as you like but without sugars or sweeteners. And you must make sure you get your water quota as well.

    Great job to all of us so far I think, anyone else on day 8 today? Not looking forward to the spinach and boiled eggs for lunch – bleh!

  1138. by ChanineNo Gravatar September 20th, 2012 11:06 am

    I ate a chewing gum… Dont know why we cant… it helps me… lol!

  1139. by CorrieNo Gravatar September 20th, 2012 4:12 pm

    Day 7 – Just a little headache today and I am not feeling so tired as before. Can eat what I want tonight ….. What to do??? So used to the menu by now that I can’t think of anything else to eat, but I know I will regret it tomorrow if I don’t take advantage :)
    I just don’t want to get on the scale tomorrow and feel like I messed. At least I’m halfway done!
    Good luck to all, and hang in there! I for one am glad I started this diet:)

  1140. by CHANINENo Gravatar September 21st, 2012 7:06 am

    Yea baby!!! Lost 2.6! On day 6 and cant wait for tommorow… I want pasta!!!!!!!!!
    The hunger is better and also dont feel so tired anymore… =) =)

  1141. by KikiNo Gravatar September 21st, 2012 7:16 am

    Day 6Still sick,little worse so still no gym,damn! I had to way this morning… Without gym and in my monthly I lost 2.5kg I am happy with it as i still cannot believe one can loose too much in one week. Don’t get me wrong I would love to loose more, but need to be realistic.
    I have made chicken strips with onion,salt and pepper, my version says I am allowed onions.
    I had to prepare as I have meetings in town and won’t be back before tonight. So chicken it is for lunch!

    Corrie what did u have last night for dinner?
    Canine, my version says sweetener is allowed.. I am on the all you want version

    Well good luck ladies, I have to go to a launch today and need to be strong to stay away from the snacks… I might have black coffee… I know I will be extremely proud to not have any coffee either. So wish me luck!

    This is a big challenge for me to stay focused… So far I am really blessed and I know all of u r too
    Xxx

  1142. by KLKNo Gravatar September 21st, 2012 11:10 am

    Day 9 – Yay steady on!!!

    Ok so I got on the scale again… and I’m happy!!!! 5.1kg in 8 days :D I am now officially out of the 90′s so very happy with progress.
    I know that the more you need to loose the more you do loose. And the first couple of days is probably water so now I’m loosing slower its def fat!!!

    Strongs all… We can finish!!!
    :)

  1143. by KikiNo Gravatar September 21st, 2012 8:15 pm

    Well done klk!!!!!!!!!

  1144. by DominiqueNo Gravatar September 22nd, 2012 6:23 pm

    Day 5 – Never been so excited to eat cheese before!!! This long weekend is gonna be tough!!

  1145. by KikiNo Gravatar September 22nd, 2012 10:03 pm

    Day 7 was not that bad today! I had my free meal tonight and funny enough I chose grilled fish with melted grilled cheese and afterwards had a cup of chocolate cottage cheese. I took a bite of my hubby’s fried sweet and sour chicken and actually fet so guilty afterwards.
    One really drawback for me is that I am still so sick, actually even a bit worse. I am on medication now, as I cannot breath at night as I have such a slimy chest and feel like I did ab exercises with all my coughing lately.

    I am happy to say that I could feel yesterday that my clothes felt slightly looser on my body… That motivates me like crazy! I have never been on such a great diet as this one!

    Some said earlier there is a book about this diet as I would like to continue on loosing more weight after this?! Anyway knows about this book, or who the person is who designed this diet?
    All the best
    Xxx

  1146. by LindaNo Gravatar September 25th, 2012 1:29 am

    Hi All – Today is my first day on the diet, I’ve read everybody’s posts and there are still no confirmation as to what we can substitute the steak with, I haven’t had read meat since 1989 and I definitely won’t be able to start eating it now. Can anybody help with this – please give confirmation as to what we can replace the steak with.
    Thanks and good luck to all my fellow dieters.

  1147. by LindaNo Gravatar September 25th, 2012 1:31 am

    Typo – I meant “red meat” and not “read meat”.

  1148. by DominiqueNo Gravatar September 25th, 2012 8:09 am

    Hi Linda

    Unfortunately the diet states that there are strictly NO substitutions.

  1149. by CorrieNo Gravatar September 25th, 2012 9:47 am

    Day 12 !!!
    Hi Kiki same as you – fish! Hahaha :) Hope u feel better soon!! Told you it’s hard to think of something else. When I think about it now, the only thing I can think of is Pizza/pasta/pancakes/ice cream … I can go on all day :) I have lost 6kg so far and will be done tomorrow, just in time for my B/day on Thursday.
    Will def do this again – but only for 7 days next time. I lost about 4.5kg in the first week and not much the last couple of days, still hoping for at least 1 more kg though…

  1150. by CandiceNo Gravatar September 25th, 2012 2:45 pm

    Hi All. Im on day 2 of the diet and going strong. The first day was really hard and I was starving. My weight was 87kg’s this morning. Thanks for all the motivation. Will keep you guys posted on how it goes.

  1151. by KikiNo Gravatar September 25th, 2012 4:00 pm

    Day 10: hi all I feel a little better but still coughing and my voice still husky. Hopefully I will be able to start training slowly tomorrow.
    To day is the 1st day I am HUNGRY, but then I drink water like plenty.
    I had 3 cups of black coffee today… But loads of water with it
    I am looking forward to dinner, just because I am hungry.
    I love fitting in my tight jeans again, still do not know the weightless yet’ so Friday and Saturday morning will be weigh in date.
    I would not mind do extend this diet by another week…what will happen?
    Anyway Great Corri, well done on your huge weigh loss, that is amazing!
    All new comers,good luck it is really worth it!

    Best diet ever!

  1152. by LindaNo Gravatar September 26th, 2012 1:57 am

    Hi Dominique – Thanks for your reply.

    Day 2 for me today – I’m not sure what I should do now, I started with the diet yesterday and had chicken rather than steak – I am so adamant to lose weight that I am really willing to try and eat steak again, would it be a problem if I start the diet over tomorrow Or should I just carry on with the diet and eat today the chicken seeing that I’ve already prepared my lunch with chicken and not steak and as of tomorrow eat the food as per the diet on day 3 – that will mean that on Day 1 (yesterday) and Day 2 (today) I didn’t have steak but chicken and from Day 3 I will then eat steak when it is required as per the diet.
    Oh my goodness – I’m so confused right now.
    Thanks everybody – and good luck!!!

  1153. by MariskaNo Gravatar September 26th, 2012 10:16 am

    Hey guys

    Was just wondering if there is any type of steak that you should eat? Can you eat minute steak, T-bone steak and sirlion steak?

  1154. by MIMINo Gravatar September 26th, 2012 12:30 pm

    HEY HOPE IT WORKS

  1155. by LindaNo Gravatar September 26th, 2012 11:02 pm

    Day 3 – Lost 1.5 Kg
    I’m so happy and even more determent to lose weight.

  1156. by LindaNo Gravatar September 26th, 2012 11:03 pm

    Hi Mariska,
    I’ve not seen that they specify what kind of steak, it seems to me any type of steak is a fair go.
    Good luck.

  1157. by KikiNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 6:26 am

    Day 12: ooh. Sour hour with lemon and carrots! Guess what I realized now the second round that I must only eat the little inner flesh pockets and not the wedge skin, cause thaaaat is freakin sour!

    Otherwise carrots in the morning is like rice crispier o a thick orange stick.

    Going to a client this morning for a presentation… I hope I won’t smell like carrots or my stomach groups while I am there

    Oh total lost for me so far is 3kg! Very pleased as I know it is fat and not water! I nearly feel like my old self, just need to get better then back to gym!

    Tomrw is my last day…. What then?

  1158. by pruNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 8:27 am

    hey all

    someone recommende this diet for me, i was a bit skeptical and i started researching until i got to this site. it’s amazing and encouraging to see how much most of you got out of it. i have reached a very emotional state with weightloss. i tried everything for the past two years and nothing seems to work. i have been on a treatment that is known to slow down metabolism and makes the body retain water. it’s like all the odds were against, considering my hectic schedule and arthritis…..i feel hopeful tha something will come out of this. it’s my day 1 today please wish me luck. am drinking my coffee now.

  1159. by TylerNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 8:43 am

    hey i was just wondering if i really stick to this and run 30 mins each day plus other exercise is it possible to lose 10kg in the 13 days?

  1160. by pruNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 8:47 am

    @ Tyler, i have just started today and i am thinking of 45mins spinning every second day, though am still struggling to get up in the morning..LOL. but i suppose it is possible.

  1161. by TylerNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 8:52 am

    Yeah i no its a far fetch! but i really want to lose the 10kg in 2 weeks! hopefully i can!!

  1162. by TylerNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 9:47 am

    hey everyone and @pru are you following the diet on this page because after finding this page i did some research on the 13 day diet and found alot of variations and different diets. is this diet the one to follow?

  1163. by pruNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 10:12 am

    @ tyler the version i am following is similar to the one Hendrika posted above. it’s the one a friend of mine followed and i have seen here results.

  1164. by pruNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 10:14 am

    the guy sitting next to me is having chips and i feel like slaping him on his face *grumpy and hungry*

  1165. by TylerNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 10:47 am

    @pru which one is that one sorry? i cant find the post

  1166. by ReneeNo Gravatar September 27th, 2012 12:07 pm

    Hello All

    Writing to motivate you – no matter how bad it gets, do the Nike slogan “Just do it!!!”

    Did the very strict version, 1 cup of black coffee a day, thereafter only water, no sugar, no milk.

    The steak was tenderised steak as big as your palm (no fat) with only salt and pepper and grilled in the oven. Green salad was only lettuce and cucumber. Ham was only 4 slices. Fat free yoghurt.

    Had severe headaches and nausea from black coffee every morning, but pushed through.

    Did a resistance work out every second night and alternated with a cario (stepping) on the other nights.

    Started on 09/09/2012 and finally finished on 21/09/2012. Did the full 11 days with a very slow metabolism, managed to lose 4.2kg.

    All the best to all of you

  1167. by SallyNo Gravatar September 29th, 2012 7:18 am

    Hey guys! I’m starting tomorrow and I’m extremely nervous but very excited as well! I just hope to lose at least 8 kilos (my ultimate goal is to lose 15-18 kilos in total) wish me luck!

  1168. by KikiNo Gravatar September 29th, 2012 9:54 am

    Finished!
    So excited with my achievement of loosing 5kg all together. I started on 62.7 and weighed 58.4kg this morning!

    I would go another week with this diet, but I wish I know what to eat next? I am having oats for breakfast and maybe chicken salad for lunch?

    Oh well please girls do not give up.

    I went on the all you want to eat and yes I did eat my heart out and had the odd coffee now and then with a friend at a coffee shop with out milk, but had sweetener and. 2 glasses of water with lemon

    I feel a bit better and want to hit the gym after breakfast , as I have a baby shower this afternoon… I will keep strong and not have snacks…..I hope?

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Day 1
    71kg
    Hunger pangs are craaaaaazy!! But I’m just consoling myself by repeating over & over & over again “there are so many people starving Irma, you can survive a couple of hours!” And it’s not that I’ve had absolutely nothing to eat. I’ve probably consumed more than 3 litres of water already (trying to keep the pangs at bay). Looking forward to the steak tonight! I truly hope this diet works, I’m determined to stick to it!!!

  1171. by SallyNo Gravatar September 30th, 2012 5:05 pm

    Day 2

    The hardest part of the day is in the morning since breakfast is my favorite meal and there’s basically no breakfast in this diet

    A lot of self-doubt, but constantly reminding myself of all the reasons I need to pull through it. Hope i succeed!!!

    Day 2
    Going much better today, although still a bit hungry, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. Didn’t weigh myself yet, to scared that i’ve not lost any weight, which will definately be demotivating! But i’ll take the chance first thing tomorrow morning.

  1173. by mizetNo Gravatar October 1st, 2012 5:06 pm

    hi, im on day 2 today.
    ham is what im hving right now and a sprite zero.
    the hard work begins tommorow, no more steak :(
    @irma, ive been thinking a lot about ur statement”there are so many people starving Irma, you can survive a couple of hours!”
    i cudnt agree with u more..whats a couple of days gonna do to us,and best of theres a BIG reward thereafter :-)

  1174. by pruuNo Gravatar October 2nd, 2012 6:22 am

    I weighd myself this morning and I dropped 3kg. So happy coz nothing ever worked for me bfore. Feeling weak though, but I must say this diet trully works.

  1175. by IrmaNo Gravatar October 2nd, 2012 4:05 pm

    Day 3
    70 kg
    So far i’ve only lost 1kg, feeling a bit despondent because i’ve been following this diet so strictly & i’m not seeing the results others are. Anyway, it’s 1kg less than i was 3 days ago, i guess. So i’m just gonna get myself out of this slump & soldier on!!!! Positive thoughts & keeping my eye on the prize!!!

  1176. by mizetNo Gravatar October 3rd, 2012 5:53 am

    day 4 and have lost 2.1kg..im happy with myself,i feel lighter..
    aluta continua :-)

  1177. by StellajoNo Gravatar October 3rd, 2012 8:08 am

    Hi guys, it’s my 3rd day today.
    I’m doing a slightly other version of the one above.
    I’ve only lost 0.6kg for the two day’s. I hope the weight falls off quicker the longer I’m on this diet!!
    The first day was easy, the second day was worse and today I’m already thinking of quitting.
    I have low blood sugar, and because I can’t snack, I start getting shaky, nauseous and not feeling very well. I had a tomato (for the shakiness) after my 2 boiled eggs, tomato salad and green beans lunch. I really hope this did not ruin my diet! :(
    Good luck everyone!!

  1178. by GeeliciousNo Gravatar October 3rd, 2012 2:36 pm

    Hi Ladies,

    I’m on Day 01, it has been easy but reading your testimonials has made me strong, I am so looking forward to the steak tonight…

    My current wait is 80kg, hoping to loose @ least 5-8 on this diet, the rest the gym will take care off i hope.

    so ladies wish me luck and gud luck to u all….

  1179. by BaksieNo Gravatar October 3rd, 2012 3:07 pm

    After reading all your comments I have hope since the people around me are all negative. I’m on day 4 and will only look at the scale on day 13. 1st 2 days were hard, but it gets betterbecause now the cravings for chocolate have subsided.

  1180. by IrmaNo Gravatar October 4th, 2012 7:13 am

    Day 5: Weighed myself this morning & still on 70kg’s! Not sure whether this diet is for me. I can probably loose the same amt of weight by following a healthy eating plan & not being hungry at all. So I’ll see how things go today, weigh myself tomorrow morning & make a decision. A bit dissapointed, thought this would be an easy way out but I guess there’s no such thing. Good luck to all of you!!!

  1181. by fakharNo Gravatar October 5th, 2012 1:34 am

    Hie everyone, this site encouraged me as well. Am at the end of my second day. My starting weight was 221 pounds. From the first day to the second morning its funny coz i had lost 10 pound.. OVERNIGHT!!! and then during the day before lunch.. i went back on the scale and i had regained 6 pounds!!! FROM A CUP OF COFFEE I ASK??!! Anyway, my sis says the scale is my worst enemy… dont know what is going on… Will keep trying.. I am not giving up… tried it twice before. This time I will pull through.

  1185. by LucilleNo Gravatar October 25th, 2012 2:08 pm

    Hi, I am also finding the diet great. I just want to know if we can drink coffee all day or only with breakfast

  1186. by NosoNo Gravatar October 29th, 2012 8:49 am

    Hi Guys

  1189. by MavisNo Gravatar October 30th, 2012 8:47 am

  1190. by AbbyNo Gravatar October 31st, 2012 7:22 am

    Hi Guys,
    I’m on Day 3 today and I’m going strong will only weigh myself after the first 7 days, however did experience a bit of runny tummy yesterday hopefully today wont be getting it again.
    I dont feel hungry and Im not getting any headaches and I hope it stays this way till the last day.
    Crossing fingers that this works.

  1191. by NosoNo Gravatar October 31st, 2012 12:57 pm

    Hi Guys

    I’m on Day 3, Just had my lunch, green beans, steamed with salt and pepper, raw tomatoes and 2 boiled eggs.
    I feel fantastic and, no headaches this time around.
    good luck to everyone :)

  1192. by NosoNo Gravatar October 31st, 2012 1:05 pm

    Hi Abby, Good luck.

    Lets see how we feel tomorrow.
    My colleague is having a birthday tea at the office this afternoon and i already gave an excuse and said i had a tummy bug :) :) , that way no one will be hussling me as to why i’m not having some food

  1193. by Abi NelsonNo Gravatar November 1st, 2012 6:58 am

    I am 18 years old and have just finished my 13th day, and have lost 7.4 kgs. I find this diet was healthy compared to all the others i have tried, and by the end of it i want to eat less and still feel energised and healthy. Its a diet where you can still do your daily exercise without feeling faint, but not in the first 3 days, our body is still getting use to the tiny amount of food. I would recrommend this diet to anyone who wants and needs to lose weight. I still have a few more kgs to go but after this diet i truly feel inspired to shed more weight. xxx

  1194. by MavisNo Gravatar November 1st, 2012 7:26 am

    Day 4 ,and i feel great ,we had a baby shower for a friend of mine yesterday ,i only drank water ,proud of myself ,also going to weigh on the 13th day

  1195. by AbbyNo Gravatar November 1st, 2012 8:32 am

    Noso darling thanks lets see how we feel.
    Day 4 already had my breakfast and I must say Im now used to the 2L of water per day, before it felt like I was drowning by the end of the day and couldnt stand the sight of water but after yesterday I’m good.
    Good Luck to everyone else

  1196. by AbbyNo Gravatar November 1st, 2012 8:33 am

  1204. by MiandaNo Gravatar November 2nd, 2012 11:46 am

    hi ABBY, how much did you loose so far?

  1205. by AbbyNo Gravatar November 2nd, 2012 12:46 pm

    Hi Mianda,
    I havent weighed in yet Im too scared I dont want to feel discouraged should I not see the expected results, so would rather weigh in on the last day and also Im worried that its nearly that time of the month so dont think I will see the best results now.
    Otherwise wishing you and your friend the best when you do try it out.

  1206. by pananaseNo Gravatar November 2nd, 2012 1:13 pm

    just had my lunch.. green leaves+2 boiled eggs+ 3 slices of ham…..

    im not hungry really!

  1207. by ZoneNo Gravatar November 4th, 2012 7:23 am

    Morning. Just started the diet this morning. Starting weight 93.5kg. Will keep posting my weight loss during the 13days to com. Wish me luck. And good luck to everyone else : )

  1208. by ZoneNo Gravatar November 5th, 2012 5:26 am

    Just weighed myself after completing day 1. Gained 500g. Current weight 94kg. Feel a bit bloated. Hopefully I will see a change on the scale tomorrow morning. Happy dieting : )d

  1209. by SaniaNo Gravatar November 5th, 2012 10:07 am

    Hi there,
    Its Day 1 for me today, have a slight headache, think its the black coffee, but still motivated. I would love to lose about 10kgs but would be very happy with losing at least 5kgs. I am still breastfeeding my lil boy so will have to see how this goes. Looking forward to reading the motivation coming through on this website. Good luck to all of you!

  1210. by SaniaNo Gravatar November 5th, 2012 11:28 am

    What can i substiute the ham with?

  1211. by pananaseNo Gravatar November 5th, 2012 1:52 pm

    day 6! terrible terrible terrible!! now having coffee….is that okay though??

  1212. by TashNo Gravatar November 5th, 2012 2:44 pm

    Hi all, I’m on day 2 and really having a tough time. Don’t feel satisfied with my meals. But I’m determined to see it through. I’m doing it along with a few of my colleagues and so that’s nice. the diet I’m following is slightly different – 13 day metabolism diet. We are only allowed sweetener, lemon joice, salt and pepper.

  1213. by ZoneNo Gravatar November 5th, 2012 2:52 pm

    I understand that turkey cold meat could be a subsitute for the Ham. But i think its better to stay with the original menu.

  1214. by MaggieNo Gravatar November 5th, 2012 2:57 pm

    Hi

    Im on day 1, wish me luck, but black coffee is tough, but will do it. Have 15 to loose.

  1215. by ZoneNo Gravatar November 6th, 2012 5:24 am

    Morning. Finished day 2. Current weight this morning is 93kg. Estimated weight loss of 500g/1kg. Not as much as I had hoped it would be. But still a loss. Also felt a little lightheaded last night. Properly the detox effect kicking in. Goodluck for today. : )

  1216. by SaniaNo Gravatar November 6th, 2012 2:00 pm

    I am moslem so i cant eat ham, but will try thr turkey option, thanks!
    Day 2 is definitely going better than day 1, but still very hungry though lol..
    Anyway hanging in there..

  1217. by ZoneNo Gravatar November 6th, 2012 6:33 pm

    I am also starving Sania hahaha. Hopefully this diet is worth the toture at the end. Had to take flu medican. Hope it does nitt effect the diet. I am also very constipated. Tomorrow is fruit and yogurt for dinner. It feels like the night before Christmas for me hahaha. h

  1218. by sammiNo Gravatar November 6th, 2012 10:45 pm

    im on day 4 and ive lost 5 kgs im also in ketosis mode……………

  1219. by ZoneNo Gravatar November 7th, 2012 5:20 am

    Wow that’s amazing Sammy!!!. Finished Day 3 Yesterday and current weight standing on 92kg. Total weightloss so far of 2kg. Happy dieting .

  1220. by SaniaNo Gravatar November 7th, 2012 7:38 am

    Well done Sammie & Zone. Im on day 3 now, lost about 1.2 kgsfor the 2 days, feeling very drained today, could not even walk up 1 flight of stairs! Also very shaky but having my breakfast now. Think the breastfeeding makes it more difficult, but not giving up yet!

  1221. by ZoneNo Gravatar November 7th, 2012 7:57 am

    Sani i was also drained for the first 3 days. Today i feel as if i can run a comrades. Believe its getting better. Congrats on your loss as well. I am also determined to push trough this diet.

  1222. by PulaneNo Gravatar November 7th, 2012 7:58 am

    hey you guys!

    I am 22 years old and come from Bloemfontein. i am not what you would call fat as i have really firm skin all round my body but i am a bit out of shape and have 30% body fat… which is not cool.

    I am on day two of the diet by the way and when i started yesterday, i am 66.4 kilos and now this morning when i weighed again, i found that i had dropped 0,8 kilos, thus making me 65.6… whoop whoop!!!!! i am hoping that by the time i am done with this diet as well as exercosong while on it, i may have lost like 10 kilos as my goal weight is 55 kgs, but i’ll just be glad even if i get to a weight of like 58 or even 60 then if all doesnt go well, so yeah, cant wait. the thing that is keeping me motivated right now is thinking about all the effort and money i already do not have that it took to buy the food needed for the diet, the time i am spending on it and the weight i will lose as well as a few Kim Kardashian pictures (dont judge me okay? lol)….

    So far i have only had breakfast and cannot wait for lunch because i prepared the food last night, which was a huge motivating factor for me ecause it made me feel prepared and ready as wlell as committed, plus today i get to get a fruit with lunch today and i love me some fruits! i am only going to have one though and thats a few thin slices of pineapple.

    1tip i would like to give all is to also try to incorporate a bit of exercise, it doesnt have to be much. Just twenty minutes a day of brisk walking or even a light jog for 10 minutes or interval training like jumping for 30 seconds then resting ten and repeating this until ten minutes are done then doing it another ten minutes maybe at a different time during the day will really really help as it helps create a calorie deficit just by virtue of the fact that your body is constantly in motion and therefore your metabolism works longer that way and uses stored fat as an energy source… another thing you could all try to do is drink iced water as it helps suppress the appetite and also when the water is cold, your body works harder to make it warm and make it a “good enough temperature” for your body, so during that whole process, what happens as that you are also burning calories. The calories are not alot because its something like 5 to 10 calories per 500 ml of iced water, but i reckon if you drink like three 500ml bottles of iced water a day, it might add up to alot by the time the week is done ( that amounts to like +/- 210 calories burned by the end of seven days just by drinking iced water), and will eventually make a difference in how many calories you lost, not to mention keeping the hunger pangs at bay.

    really hopes this helps…. Keep in touch soon to let you know about my progress and to rely on you guys for strength and motivation!!!!!

    Mwaaaaaaaah! much love! stay strong and always when temptation tries to follow you, just think about how you’ve been tempted all your life and what it would be not to give in to it, just this once for just two weeks and then after that you can be tempted all you want for two to three years before returning to the diet again. And just think about those fat rolls decreasing, those jeans fitting, skin getting firmer, being closer to those hot abs, fine butt, toned arms and people noticing you being thinner, healthier and lighter….

    ok i talk too much lol bye yalz!

  1223. by pananaseNo Gravatar November 7th, 2012 12:30 pm

    day 8..just weighed myself ,and i have lost just 0.3kgs!! heartbroken…

  1224. by SinoNo Gravatar November 7th, 2012 2:11 pm

  1231. by MonicaNo Gravatar November 15th, 2012 7:30 am

    I weight 81.5 and are so depressed ……. so I’ve decided to start with this diet today. I can’t every finish anything but Im going to finish this one. I just wanna loose at least 6.5 kg. Had a cup of black coffee for breakfast.

  1232. by NicoleNo Gravatar November 16th, 2012 1:04 pm

    I” m on day 4 and just have a nagging headache today.

  1233. by CharlotteNo Gravatar November 18th, 2012 9:42 am

    I am on day 7. Starting weight was 76kgs. I am currently 72. So far I’ve lost 4kgs. I am on the very strict version which on day 7 has a cup of tea, no lunch and a lamb chop and fruit for dinner. I have been handling the diet well until this morning. I woke up weak and disorientated. Day 7 does not have toast but for the sake of my sanity i had a slice. I am now feeling alive, but very disappointed with myself.

  1234. by AndiNo Gravatar November 19th, 2012 9:39 am

    Just started yesterday. I read your comments and I can’t wait to see what will this diet do for me…My starting weight was 59kgs. Day 1 was OK, didn’t feel hungry at all :-)

  1235. by pikkewynNo Gravatar November 19th, 2012 2:06 pm

    Hi all,

    Your comments are truly inspiring. I tried this diet last week and only got to day 3, I stuffed up (my bad) had headache tablets for my migraine, and instead of coffee I had tea, but still lost 1kg in those 3 days, haven’t put it on yet and we had quite a braai with everything I’m not supposed to eat while having insulin resistance. So starting again tomorrow, going to follow this diet as is now, many people say you can substitute certain things with others, and as much as I HATE spinach, I’ve decided that I’ll do this as it was meant to be done. I was very ill in my first 3 days though, so going to pray for these 13 days to be over. I MUST lose this weight.

    I know that many have lost great amounts of weight on this diet, but mostly people lose around 4 – 6 kg on average. A friend of mine however lost 23cm in his 13 days, and that’s what I’m looking for, to lose serious cm’s.

    Good luck to everyone … keep strong

  1236. by leboNo Gravatar November 20th, 2012 8:52 am

    hi all,
    its good to be back again,today im on day 2.hoping to loose again this year.
    Good luck everyone………..

  1237. by pikkewynNo Gravatar November 20th, 2012 8:58 am

    And so it begins … had 3 cups of coffee already (gag) to try quiet my stomach, but still feels like my tummy is chewing on itself.

    Starting weight 79 kg … waist size: 97 cm
    Would like to lose at least 5 kg … and must lose at least 15cm

    Let’s see how it goes.

    Blessings all

  1238. by CharlotteNo Gravatar November 20th, 2012 10:59 am

    Hie Guys!

    I am on day 9. I have lost another kilo since my last weigh in making it 5kgs lost in 9days. If i manage to lose 3 more over the next 4 days, i will surely celebrate with a glass of the best water in town!!!!

    Outfits that were difficult to zip up a week ago are getting comfortable. Guys this diet works , do not give into temptation. Would anyone have a good eating plan after this diet.

    My ultimate target is to get to 66kgs.
    Staring weight – 76kgs
    Current weight – 71
    Target weight – 66

  1239. by pikkewynNo Gravatar November 20th, 2012 11:09 am

    Hi Charlotte,

    Nicely done!!

    After the 13 days I’m going to start the Paleo diet, it’s similar to what we’re doing now, but you’re not restricted on fruit or veggies. It’s a decent and healthy lifestyle change.

    http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2010/10/04/the-beginners-guide-to-the-paleo-diet/

    Let us know how things go until day 13 :)

  1240. by NixieNo Gravatar November 20th, 2012 12:41 pm

    Hi everyone,

    Day 3 for me, doing well.
    Have my fathers 50th this weekend…it’s going to take all my strength not to have a sip of alcohol or eat some of the food.
    No side effects really, had a slight headache but as soon as I had lunch, it went away.

    Good luck!

  1241. by pikkewynNo Gravatar November 21st, 2012 7:54 am

    Hi All,

    I’m on day 2 now.
    Starting weight: 79 kg … starting waste size: 97cm
    Current weight: 78 kg … current waste size: 92.5cm :D Yay!!

    This diet is awesome … granted it’s probably just water weight, but still … it’s awesome :D

    I’m so thankful I’m on this diet :)

  1242. by leboNo Gravatar November 21st, 2012 8:14 am

    hi all,
    today is day 3 for me and im still going strong.
    i havent weighed myself yet,intention is to do that on day 6.

    71 kg- starting weight
    65kg- Target weight

    keep it strong…………

  1243. by NixieNo Gravatar November 21st, 2012 9:51 am

    Day 4 – Woke up with an extreme headache and feeling like my limbs did not want to take commands from my brain.
    Had my cup of coffee and a bottle of water on the way to work, felt much better.

    Persistance is something you have to master for this diet, you will have your moment of feeling down, tired & hungry but it soon passes.

    I’m doing this for 14 days – I have a somewhat different version of the above diet, mostly the same though.

    Starting Weight: 65kg
    Current Weight: 64kg
    Goal: 59kg

    My scale unfortunately only measures in 0 and 0.5 so it’s difficult to tell the exact gram, crappy scale.
    Seems like I’ve only lost 1kg, suppose that’s not bad for 4 days. Hope this is worth it.

  1244. by AndiNo Gravatar November 21st, 2012 9:55 am

    Hi everyone,

    Day 4 is starting for me…here are some results after 3 days
    starting weight 59kgs /waist size: 72 cm
    after 3 days 57,5 kgs/waist size: 69 cm

    But I think that 1,5kg could be mainly water…however i force myself to drink about 3 l of water/tea

    My boyfriend also started the diet and he lost 2,5kgs in 3 days!!!!

    take care!

    Hey Andi,

    Mind if I ask your height?
    I would give anything to have your stats, in fact, your stats are what’s healthy for me, but I’m 172 cm tall. Although my waste (according to me) should be about 56 cm LOL

    Stay strong girls … 2 weeks fly by, and at the end, we’ll all be happy we stuck it out :)

  1246. by kgomotsoNo Gravatar November 21st, 2012 12:36 pm

    i am on day 6 of the diet and so far have lost 3.3 kilograms. i must say, i look forward to every morning when i weigh myself see the results. I lost 2.4 in the first two days with the 900g in the other 3 days. I have religiously stuck to the meal plan and have even stepped up my exercising. I want to really stick to a diet for the first time in my life before dismissing it and trying the next one. So far, so good. I heard it would be risky to repeat the diet within 12 months, but really have a lot to lose still. I want to do it again in January.

  1249. by NixieNo Gravatar November 22nd, 2012 7:32 am

    Day 5! Cant believe I’ve made it this far – no headaches today so far and feeling like I have a bit more energy
    Got home from work yesterday (day 4) and weighed myself…scale showed 63kg.
    Weighed again this morning and showed 62kg – so that’s 2kg which i’m very happy about.
    Excited to see what it’s on when I get home today.

    Not looking forward to the fish today, had to make it last night – not sure how I feel about warming it up in the microwave at work today.

    Well done Andi, keep going!
    And good luck to Tanya on day 1!
    Well done Kgomotso!

    Hi pikkewyn,

    I’m 162cm, most of my life my weight has been 48-51 kgs, but I injured my hip little over a year ago and I spent about 8 months on a couch (eating). Now I’m ok and I started working out (about 15min/day) but I didn’t get any real results, since I still can not do any high impact exercise.

    So far I really like this diet – I’m not as hungry as I thought I would be and my clothes fit me a lot better after only 4 days!!!!

    Good job girls – keep your spirits up!
    It’s only 2 weeks afteall ;-)

  1251. by CharlotteNo Gravatar November 22nd, 2012 7:25 pm

    Hie guys!

    Didn’t i just feel so good this morning when i resisted the temptation of eating the most scrumptious meal at a breakfast meeting. Control control control! I urge anyone starting this diet to ensure that the 2 weeks are free from any activities or functions that involve eating. Parties, braais, cocktails, luncheons……too much self control required.

    My second week is not as exciting on the scale. Today is day 11 and i have lost 6 kilos so far. I started on 76 and today am on 70kgs.

    I am 5kgs away from my ultimate goal yipeeeeeee.

    Good luck everyone!!!!!

    Pikkweyn, thanks for the diet recommendation i will give the eating plan a try.

  1252. by pikkewynNo Gravatar November 23rd, 2012 6:40 am

    Hi Andi,

    Geeze, I’m sorry about your injury :(
    I did karate, and lost an enormous amount of weight, then got a severe muscle injury with tissue damage, also around my hip, this was about 4 years ago, and I still have the injury, I went from size 8 to size 16 again from not being able to exercise. Now I’m also doing low impact muscle exercise and strength training.

    Good luck to you sweety, and to all of you. You’re all doing wonderful! :)

    Today I start day 4, and since day 1 I haven’t lost any further kg’s or cm’s, so I’m praying that I’m that I’ll start losing weight and cm’s again soon.

    Thanks for everyone’s inspirational comments, I draw a lot of strength from it, and I know that others do too.

    Hope you all have a wonderful day :)

  1253. by AshNo Gravatar November 23rd, 2012 8:26 am

    On day 10 today, for a total of +-5kgs lost :D

    Its my first day today. I weigh 87kgs. I am really eager to finish this diet and I pray to God that it will work for me as much as it has worked for the other ladies that have tried it. A bit of negative comments from other people but I am more than prepared to do this.

  1259. by sanenhlanhla macashaNo Gravatar November 27th, 2012 9:17 am

    Hi

    I am on Day 1 of the diet. havent weighed myself yet. will keep updating each day. ladies please share your experience with me as I need motivation to stay on this diet. im hoping ill loose some weight that I gained during pregnancy.

  1260. by mizetNo Gravatar November 27th, 2012 3:14 pm

    @nobuhle and Sane
    Im on day 2 of the diet..its ham tonight,im really not a fan but i need to lose some flab and i know this can only help me,Dec is only a couple of days away, we need to look HOT
    im also on 87, really hoping to get to the ealry 80s and lose 5kgs,

  1261. by Leah S.No Gravatar November 28th, 2012 3:47 am

    hey all,
    I am on day 4 of this diet(actually I am going home soon and I found the Royal Danish diet just in time when I had 15days left before going home, later I found this website, I hope the 13day danish diet has same effects).Unfortunately I did not check my weight before day one.But a few weeks before I know I was somewhere around 100kg. anyway on morning of day 3 I was 101kg(I hope that was after loosing a kg or two), but it frightened me, so I would recommend you must check starting weight , for all I know mine could have been 103 which means I lost enough in two days.Anyway now I have decided not to hit the scale until after day 13 !
    From all the above comments it seems like the bigger you are the more you loose…I am desperate to enter 80′s even if at the end I am 89 I would dance with joy …. help me stay firm ! and if anyone has lost more than 10kg please share your results it helps me have faith :)

  1262. by Leah S.No Gravatar November 28th, 2012 4:02 am

    2 Questions:

    SMOKING : Firstly I need to know if smoking is not allowed during the diet …it actually helps me with hunger pangs if i smoke 2,3 cig a day.Should I quit? Please advice me a/c to your experience …..
    I have chosen a bad time for this diet, These 2weeks are my final exam week and I am working part time at the same time with the constant dread of how shocked my family will be with my huge size :( so this is really the last hope for me for now so if anything has a chance of messing it up I would stop immediately

    EXCERCISE: Secondly I haven’t exercised so far since I started this diet simply because i didn’t have time , but I am going to start a 30min walk (i really dont have time) everyday starting today(day 4) – do you think if I do not do much exercise it will still work? because I couldn’t find any instruction about exercise during this diet

  1263. by leboNo Gravatar November 28th, 2012 8:43 am

    hi all.
    i only lasted till day 7,but i managed to loose 3kg in total.just gona make sure i dnt gain it again.
    Good luck all!

  1264. by Leah S.No Gravatar November 28th, 2012 11:30 am

    Day 4 ….the version of 13 day diet i am following by name of royal danish diet ….day 4 has 250g of cheese to eat for dinner….i simply cannot ! i forced myself to eat 150 but that’s my limit of endurance…I can already feel something funny going on in m stomach.I understand that If you eat anything extra..diet wont work..how about if you eat less than instructed doe sit stop working??

  1265. by JessicaNo Gravatar November 28th, 2012 3:31 pm

    Hi,

    I am at possibly the lowest weight I’ve been at. But, I still have those last 5 kg to lose. I notice a lot of the people doing this are quite overweight – so am wondering if this will also work in my situation???

    I mean I guess I might lose a little, but will not sure if it’s possible to lose those last 5 or not..?

  1266. by tellaNo Gravatar November 29th, 2012 6:48 am

    Hi everyone!
    So its been 6 months and I am back and wanting to lose more! Lost 7.8kg last time and I can tell you I haven’t gained any since and lost some more. I am 6 kg away from my target weight and want to lose the last bid for a mooi strand lyfie (bikini ready)
    I am starting the diet again on monday. I just can’t seem to get around eating ham it makes me sick. So I am thinking of replacing it with lean pork meat for it seems even more healthier than prosesed ham and who knows what they put into it! What do you girls think?? Good luck to everyone and keep strong its realy worth it! Xx

  1267. by Nobuhle MbonambiNo Gravatar November 29th, 2012 8:11 am

    Day 3

    I am 84.9kg’s today. Ladies Ladies Ladies, I am so excited and ecstatic, I dont remember being in the 84′s. This is amazing. To date I am 1.8kg’s down in 2 days.

    I also jog in the evenings a bit so that must be helping too

    Good luck to all the ladies on the diet, LETS DO THIS!

  1268. by mizetNo Gravatar November 29th, 2012 9:52 am

    Day4
    way to go Buhle!im gonna weigh myself tommorow morning…
    i havent jogged the last 2days, will try go later today.i hope im 84 tommorow atleast..
    nothing motivates me more than seeing the scale moving against me hehehehe

  1269. by Leah S.No Gravatar November 30th, 2012 2:20 am

    Jessica,
    I think the bigger you are the more dramatically you loose weight like people like me 100kg, may loose more than 10kg, some loose even upto 15kg,men mostly.others who weigh 75-90kg also seem to loose nearly 10kg just fine.however people who are not really overweight might loose less anywhere between 5-10kg, but nearly everyone looses at least at least at least minimum 5kg even if you are fit.(I have read almost every thread there is about 13day diet and this is what i understood from that studying all the results/reviews)I guess we will know more after you share your results :)

    I am on Day 6 ! reading your results above makes me optimistic I so wana see the same after day 13 !

  1270. by mizetNo Gravatar November 30th, 2012 7:40 am

    whoop whoop!!!!!! 3.1kgs lost so far, day 5 it is :)
    im so happy i just wanna keep going,weighed myself this morning im 84.7
    @leah i think if you exercise aswell thats when ur most likely to loose more,
    ive done the diet befor when i wasnt exercising- i lost about 2kg in a week.

  1271. by Nobuhle MbonambiNo Gravatar November 30th, 2012 10:48 am

    Hi Ladies

    Day 4 today

    @ Mizet, we are exactly the same weight today. I also weighed myself this morning and I am 84.7. A bit dissapointed because it means i only lost 0.2kg’s from yeaterday which makes my total loss 2k’s in 3 days. :(

    I think i wont weigh myself daily now , Ill rather do it once every three days – Any thoughts on this ladies?

    Im still going strong
    Much Love

  1272. by AndiNo Gravatar November 30th, 2012 3:17 pm

    Hi girls,

    End of diet for me :-) and I think it was well worth it :-) here are my results:
    starting weight 59kgs /waist: 72 cm/hips: 96 cm
    after 14 days 54,5 kgs/waist: 64 cm/hips: 89 cm

    I only have another 2-3kg to loose and I will reach my goal – I will take this weekend off and next week I will start wit paleo diet plan.

    Stay strong, if I managed to indure 14 days of this (and I do not have any willpower) SO CAN YOU!!!

  1273. by Leah S.No Gravatar December 1st, 2012 5:35 am

    @mizet
    Yeah it makes sense, I just don’t have time these for exercise days, its exams week and job :( .I started 30min walk yesterday and did it today and intend to continue but I dont know if that’s enough.i guess its better than nothing.By the since you have does this once before also, what happens if you eat somewhat less than instructed? I mean I cannot eat 400g spinach no matter how much i tried I almost puked (I am following the Royal Danish hospital version)

    Anyway it’s my day 7 today so I am halfway through.It makes me so happy to read great results , but I still have a deep fear in my heart what if I dont get similar results :(

  1274. by MizetNo Gravatar December 1st, 2012 8:07 am

    Ladies we are making great progress ,let’s keep going…I really enjoyed my steak last night I’m even looking forward to the chicken this afternoon ,this certainly makes up forthe horrible green beans I had the other day
    I for one do ot stick to the food measurements however I try to eat the required minimum and of cos the more effort u put in ensures maximum results :-)
    The less effort means that you will be like me wo had to repeat the diet cos I wasn’t serious the first time,hence delaying myself to reach my goal weight.
    Speaking of which,,,,I’m more than certain I will be 80kg at the very end of this plan,so lets fix our eyes on our goals and look forward to a healthier lifestyle in 2013,
    Just because its December doesn’t mean we should over indulge, our bodies can only take so much!
    I’m also weighing every 2/3rd day so not to get frustrated, so will let u know ow far I am tomorrow

  1275. by Leah S.No Gravatar December 2nd, 2012 2:52 am

    Day 8 ! ….. fingers crossed

  1276. by Leah S.No Gravatar December 2nd, 2012 8:44 am

    Got an early Christmas present from my boss…. CHOCOLATES ! but I had the sense to put them away immediately …haha I cant help being a lil proud of myself

  1277. by mizetNo Gravatar December 4th, 2012 1:50 pm

    u ought to be proud,takes a lot of willpower gal :-)

  1278. by Nobuhle MbonambiNo Gravatar December 5th, 2012 10:14 am

    Hi Ladies

    Ive been away from this website for a site. Im so happy to see that all the ladies are doing well, Keep up the good work.

    Trying to start a diet just before xmas – did not work.

    But Im back on day 1 today and ready for the next 12 days. Weight this morning was 80.5 g’s and i did all my measurements to monitor my progress.

    Im very motivated to finish this diet – It only me , myself and I now.

    Day 1 is always the worst day – I hate spinach. But Im so motivated not even spinach will put me off.

    Will keep you informed of my progress

  1287. by StormNo Gravatar January 1st, 2013 9:30 am

    Good Morning Everybody.

    Yesterday I had 3l of water (so proud of myself)
    Day 2 for me and I’ve lost 0.5kg’s. Weight now 80 kg.
    I had my 2 slices of whole wheat bread and 1 cup of black coffee. Looking forward to the yumie lunch today but not so much to the ham for supper.

    I have 11.5 days left to get to my goal of 75kg’s.

  1288. by StormNo Gravatar January 1st, 2013 7:22 pm

    Day 2 done and dusted. Cant wait to get onto the scale tomorrow morning.
    had more than 2 lit of water today

  1289. by StormNo Gravatar January 2nd, 2013 6:59 am

    Day 3 and i’ve lost 1kg and a total of 8cm. Im below 80kg yepie. 79.5 kg’s

    10 days to go.

  1290. by StormNo Gravatar January 3rd, 2013 8:06 am

    Day 4 today……………….. starting weight was 80.5 and today 79.1 kg. 1.4kg down in 3 days. I also did my measurements again and I’ve lost 13cm’s around my body.

  1291. by StormNo Gravatar January 3rd, 2013 11:56 am

    Lunch time and Im not really hungry. Im just gonna have a small portion on the lunch.

  1292. by StormNo Gravatar January 4th, 2013 6:54 am

    Day 5 and i gained 400 g Im back on 79.5 kg. Im so disappointmented in myself – yesterday i had 5ml of mayonaise over my fish because the fish was so dry. Anyway I had my 2l o f water yesterday and wake up several time during the night to run to the bathroom.

    Im joining they gym today and will be starting with arobic classess soon. When Im finished with my 13 days Im going to join a weigh less group.

    im 35 years old and look 50. I need to get back in shape

  1293. by StormNo Gravatar January 5th, 2013 7:59 am

    Day 6 today and Im weight is unchanged on 79.5kg – at least im not gaining any weight so i will just carry on with the diet. i know that if you eat something wrong on any diet it will affect weight lost for at least 3 days. I joined the gym yesterday and will be starting on Monday. Maybe exercise will help with speeding up the weight loss. the lost time on the diet I lost 5kg.

  1294. by VickyNo Gravatar January 11th, 2013 7:17 pm
